Blindfolded, handcuffed man shot in Cubao

A blindfolded and handcuffed man was shot in Cubao, Quezon City, Wednesday.

A CCTV footage showed an SUV which turned right from Liberty Avenue going to 7th Avenue sa Cubao, Quezon City, at around 2 am. The vehicle’s driver went down and took a few minutes to observe the area as if trying to find the timing.


Shortly after that, two more men got off the SUV. One of them was suddenly shot to the side of the road.

The suspects fled but were forced to go back because the road was closed.

The victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds in his body. The man was shot while he was blindfolded and in handcuffs.


Authorities said the victim was no a resident of the said barangay.

Police recovered a bag from the victim containing his personal belongings.

Although the CCTV captured the crime, the SUV’s license plate was not visible in the footage.


The Quezon City Police District is still investigating the crime.

3 students shot in road rage

Three students were seriously injured after a back-rider of the motorcycle they collided with shot them in road rage on a highway at Purok 3, Barangay Mangilag Norte, Candelaria, Quezon.

The victims identified as Arnold Estolano, 19, Kien Ivan Delos Santos, 18, and 14-year-old Mark are still being treated at the United Candelaria Doctors Hospital due to gunshot wounds to various parts of the body. All were residents of Purok 4, Barangay Mangilag Norte.

According to reports, Estolano was driving a motorcycle with his two friends riding at the back. The three were on their way to Maryland Subdivision at around 1:00 am when they collided with another motorcycle driven by Ladislao Tubo, 44, resident of 2. Brgy. Mangilag Norte and a back-rider.

The suspects immediately escaped the crime scene when the victims fell on the ground.
