A 35-year-old woman was killed the other night by a still unknown male suspect who shot her while she was lying on a sofa and chatting with her daughter inside their home in Tondo, Manila.

Victim Blesa Pugal of 1648 Prudencia St., Tondo, died on the spot while authorities are reportedly hunting down the suspect described as about 30 years old, five feet tall and medium built.

Investigation by SPO4 Glenzor Vallejo of the Manila Police District (MPD)-Crimes Against Persons Investigation Section (CAPIS) said that at around 6:40 p.m., the victim was lying on the sofa and happily chatting with her daughter Jasmin when the suspect barged in.

The suspect shot the victim pointblank in front of the horrified girl and then hastily left after warning the daughter to stay still.

The suspect reportedly walked toward a basketball court located at the corner of Perfecto and Mercado Streets where a cohort aboard a motorcycle was waiting for him.  The two then sped away toward an unknown direction.
Police are now investigating the incident.
