MANILA, Philippines — A police officer included in the drug list of President Duterte was shot dead by motorcycle-riding assailants in Makati yesterday morning. 

Maj. Jedfrey Dalson was sitting in his car parked at the corner of J.P. Rizal street and 29th Avenue in Barangay East Rembo when he was killed at around 7 a.m.

Dalson, assigned at the office of Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Archie Francisco Gamboa, died at the scene due to multiple gunshot wounds in the body.

Probers have yet to ascertain Dalson’s last assignment prior to his transfer to the Office of the Chief PNP. 

Gamboa said he has yet to receive a full report on the matter even as he ordered an immediate investigation of the incident. 

Footage taken by closed-circuit television cameras showed Dalson talking to a civilian when a motorcycle with two men on board pulled over.

One of the men approached Dalson and shot him at least seven times, prompting the civilian to run away.

The assailant returned to the motorcyle driven by his companion. They fled from the scene. 

Probers have yet to determine the motive for the killing.
