A former policeman was killed while his wife escaped unhurt in a gun attack at Locson Drive, Talon-Talon last Friday night.

The fatality was identified as Darwin Detuyato y Isnani, a former Police Officer 3 (PO3).

Supt. Nonito Asdai, Tetuan Police Station chief, said Detuyato sustained bullet wounds in the head and died on the spot.

Initial investigation showed Detuyato and his wife were walking on their way home around 7 p.m. when a gunman appeared and shot him in front of his horrified wife.

Police said that Detuyato was shot more or less 100 meters away from their residence.

The gunman fled after seeing the policeman slumped on the ground.

Police said the gunman was not immediately identified as no one from the place recognized him.

Report said that Detuyato was dismissed from the PNP after his involvement in drug activities.

Police suspected that Detuyato’s killing has something to do with drugs. – Dan Toribio Jr.
