A contractual employee of the Land Transportation Office-9’s Operations Division was taken yesterday to the City Prosector’s Office for inquest for murder in connection with the gunslaying of a young car-motorcycle parts store owner in Guiwan Friday night last week.

Manny Pangutaran Pinpin was invited last Saturday to the  Divisoria police station for questioning

relative to the killing of Rey Angelo Tan y Kwan, 24, owner of Spyder, that sells car and motorcycle parts and accessories.

At the Divisoria Police Station, witnesses positively identified Pinpin three times during a presentation, according to the police.

Police have not divulged the motive of the killing.

Tan, a resident of St. Mary St., Cabato Road, was sitting on a wooden chair outside his store when a gunman armed with a 9mm pistol arrived and shot him several times at close range around 6 p.m.

The gunman first walked casually from the crime scene and at San Bernardino bridge, he ran fast towards Cabato Road.

Tan was rushed to the hospital around 7:30 p.m. but attending physicians declared him dead due to fatal multiple bullet wounds in the body.

Recovered at the crime scene were a deformed slug and four spent shells of 9mm pistol.

One of the witnesses told the police that the gunman was clad in black jacket and cargo shorts and was carrying a backpack. — Dan Toribio Jr.
