MANILA, Philippines — A man who had just visited an inmate at a police station in Quezon City was shot dead by a lone assailant yesterday afternoon.

Neil Paglinawan and his companion, Mike Cruz, visited a friend detained at the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Station 10 for an unspecified crime and were on their way home in a mini-van to Barangay Pinyahan when they were attacked.

The shooting took place along the northbound lane of EDSA near East Avenue in Barangay South Triangle at around 3:10 p.m., a desk officer at Station 10 said in a phone interview.

Paglinawan, a jeepney driver, died at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds in the body. Cruz was unhurt.

Probers recovered four bullet casings from a .45 caliber pistol at the scene.

An investigation is ongoing to determine the assailant’s identity and motive for the shooting.
