MANILA, Sept. 18 – The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) has launched a manhunt against three men who shot dead a traffic policeman in Novaliches, Quezon City Friday night.

QCPD Homicide Section investigators identified the victim as Police Officer 1 Efren Jacobo of the QCPD Mobile Patrol Division.

Initial investigation showed that at around 10 p.m. Friday, Jacobo was riding his motorcycle along Mindanao Avenue near Tandang Sora Avenue, Barangay Tandang Sora, Novaliches, when one of the three suspects aboard a Honda Civic shot him for still unknown reasons.

The suspects fled while witnesses rushed Jacobo to the Quezon City General Hospital (QCGH) where he was declared dead on arrival.

QCPD operatives later recovered the Honda Civic which the suspects abandoned. They said they are checking if the vehicle was stolen.

Investigators theorized the suspects shot Jacobo on suspicion he was tailing them. (PNA) scs/JCA
