A 46-year-old man was shot to death by one of two men riding on a motorcycle along Governor Camins Avenue yesterday afternoon.
Police identified the fatality as Roberto Sunga, 46, married, of Sta. Catalina. He sustained three gunshot wounds in the different parts of the body.

Initial investigation showed that Sunga was riding on a motorcycle heading for Sta. Cruz Market  around 4:30 p.m., when two men aboard another motorcycle appeared from behind and the backrider shot him three times in front of Emcor Marketing.

Sunga fell on the road and although wounded, he was able to walk a few steps and collapsed on the sidewalk.
The gunmen sped away eastward and while they were approaching San Bernardino Bridge in Guiwan, the backrider shot but missed the driver of a fish carrier truck to clear their way.

The truck driver escaped unhurt, but the vehicle incurred bullet hole near the driver’s seat.
Sunga was rushed to the Zamboanga City Medical Center where he was declared dead on arrival.
Police were still trying checking on an information that Sunga was allegedly involved in pawnshop robberies. — Dan Toribio Jr.
