A college student was gunned down in what is believed to be a robbery incident at Purok 3, Mampang last Friday.

The fatality was identified as Albashier Aminola Basiri, of Kapuk, Purok 7 and a student of Universidad de Zamboanga (UZ).

Initial investigation showed that Basiri with a certain Abdulbasser Indanan y Paraja were riding tandem onboard a motorcycle last Friday night when the shooting happened.

Upon reaching the area near the Algoso residence, Basiri stopped to send a text message.

Suddenly, one of two men riding tandem on a scooter arrived and grabbed Basiri’s cell phone.

Basiri resisted, prompting one of the suspects to shoot him.

Police said that Basiri was shot in the head and was killed on the spot.

The suspects sped towards the city proper while Indanan drove the victim’s motorcycle and rushed to the Mampang Barangay Hall to seek assistance.

Police recovered a spent shell of a .45 caliber pistol at the crime scene. (Dan  Toribio)
