- Mellanie Joy C. Rosales -

CEBU, Philippines - A manager of a bicycle parts store was shot dead while he was at work last Tuesday afternoon in barangay Cansaga, Consolacion town. 

Police said Ritchie Herera Oybeneses, 25, manager of FDC Cycle Parts, located at the back of Yamaha Display Center building, when the assailant gunned him down at around 2:15 p.m.

The witnesses, who are co-workers of the victim, told investigators that while they were doing some inventory, they heard three bursts of gunfire and saw Oybeneses lying on the floor bleeding.

Then they saw a man went out the store and boarded a black motorcycle and fled towards Lilo-an town.

Witnesses describe the man to be about 5’6” tall, more than 36 years old and with brown complexion.

They also said that they could identify the gunman if they happen to see him again as he was not covering his face when he carried the crime.

Oybeneses died on the spot due to the fatal gunshot wounds he sustained in right shoulder, in the thigh and in the chest with the bullet exiting through his back.

Responding police officers recovered three empty shells of caliber .45 pistol, one deformed and two other slugs from the crime scene.

Oybeneses’ co-workers said they do not know that the victim had an enemy.

On the same day, another man was killed in Barangay Sacsac, Consolacion by two unidentified suspects while he was outside his house.

Rodulfo Gerona Mendaros, 66, resident of the place, allegedly went outside his house when after he was awakened by the barking of the dogs at around 5:30 a.m.

Police said the victim went outside to check if somebody was outside his house. But suddenly, a man appeared and shot him once using an unknown caliber of firearms.

Mendaros sustained a gunshot wound to the chest and did not make it alive at the Eversely Hospital in Jagobiao, Mandaue City.

Investigators said the victim’s wife believes that the suspect is just one of their neighbors.

According to her, the victim had an argument with someone regarding a land but she’s not sure if it is the same person who killed her husband since she was not able to see the face of the man who shot him. — THE FREEMAN
