MANILA, Philippines — A policeman was killed by a still unidentified assailant at a wake in Taguig City yesterday.

Pat. Ralph Calucag Aquino, assigned to Police Community Precinct 8 in Barangay Bagumbayan, died at the scene from a gunshot wound in the head.

He was picked up by a certain “Toto” from the house of a common friend to attend a wake along Paso street, police said.

While Aquino was at the wake, the assailant shot him and fled on foot.

Aquino’s alleged gambling habit – he was said to play the coin gambling game cara y cruz – could be among the motives for the attack, said Maj. Ramon Christian Laygo, city police investigation unit chief.
