A man was shot and killed in a Baliwasan alley last Thursday after refusing to buy shabu for his alleged assailant.

The fatality was identified as Mustafa Tangkian, a resident of Barangay Talon -Talon.

Initial investigation showed that Tangkian was playing toss coin with relatives in an alley along Aquino Drive at 10 p.m. when an unidentified man appeared and asked him to buy shabu.

An argument between the two men ensued after Tangkian refused to follow the order.

The suspect then drew a handgun and shot Tangkian.

The victim sustained bullet wounds and was taken to the hospital where he was declared dead on arrival by attending physicians.

Police recovered a spent shell of a .45 caliber pistol at the crime scene.

Police are investigating the identity of the man who made the deadly request.  (Dan Toribio)
