October 03, 2018

A 29-year-old lesbian was killed when a lone gunman shot her repeatedly in the head and body a few meters away from her house Tuesday night in Taguig City.

Taguig police chief Senior Supt. Alexander Santos identified the victim as April Abuya, of 643 P-9, PNR Site, FTI Complex, Western Bicutan, while the unidentified assailant fled on foot.

A report received by acting Southern Police District (SPD) director Senior Supt. Eliseo Cruz said the victim was standing near PNR Gate, FTI Compound at around 11:10 p.m. when the suspect, armed with unknown caliber of handgun, appeared and shot her repeatedly in the head and body, killing her instantly.

“Mukhang galit na galit ang gunman, halos tadtarin ng bala ang ulo at katawan ng biktima, duguan nang nakahandusay, pinagbababaril pa,” police said.

Police are now trying to secure a copy of footage taken by closed circuit television (CCTV) camera installed by FTI management in the area for possible identification of the suspect.
