AN unidentified gunman, his face covered with a black t-shirt shot and killed a 40-year old woman in Cagayan de Oro City on Friday afternoon before fleeing on foot, a Police Regional Office 10 report said.
The victim identified as Erlyn Casimero suffered a gunshot wound at the back of her head and died on the spot during the attack which took place while the woman was playing an online game in a ‘sari-sari’ store in Basak Tangkongan, Pinikitan in Barangay Camamanan around 5 p.m. Friday, said local police director, Colonel Henry Dampal.
Witnesses said the gunman who was wearing a black jacket silently approached the woman who was then busy playing the computer game before firing a single shot on her head without any provocation.
The killer fled on foot towards the inner part of Pinikitan area and is still being hunted as of press time, said Dampal.
The official said that they are looking into reports that the woman’s killing was related to illegal drugs although he did not elaborate.
