AN ex-convict was shot dead by two unidentified men while he was walking in Tondo, Manila, early yesterday morning.

Jonathan Flores, 25, said to be a member of the ‘Sputnik Gang’ and residing on Riverside, Katuparan, Vitas, Tondo, Manila, died instantly due to five gunshot wounds in the head and body. He was reportedly released from jail just recently after serving time for robbery.
   
SPO2 Charles John Duran of the Manila Police Disrict-Homicide Section said the shooting happened at around 1 a.m. at the ground floor of Building 3, Katuparan, Vitas, Tondo, Manila.
   
The victim was said to be walking in the area on his way home when one of the two suspects shot him pointblank while the other served as a lookout.
   
Once the victim fell, the two fled on foot toward an unkown direction.  He was rushed to the nearest hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
