A jobless man was shot dead by an unidentified lone assailant Thursday evening in Makati City.

Rolando Medenilla, 30 of 5274 P. Binay corner Hayes Streets Brgy. Pio Del Pilar died on the spot from bullet wounds in the nape and body while the suspect immediately escaped on foot towards an unknown direction.

Makati police Chief Senior Supt. Rogelio Simon said the victim was standing in front of his house at around 6:30 p.m. when the suspect approached him and without a word shot him repeatedly, killing him instantly.

Homicide investigators are now trying to determine if the incident was captured by a close circuit television (CCTV) camera installed by barangay in the area.

Homicide investigators are looking at different angles, including personal grudge and illegal drugs as the motive behind the killing.
