A Philippine Air Force enlistedman was shot dead in Barangay Nunukan, Sibutu, Tawi-Tawi last Tuesday night.

The fatality was identified as TSgt. Mario Ericson Odquier. He sustained a bullet wound in the head and died on the spot.

A report received by DZT disclosed that Odquier was driving a motorcycle on his way when a gunman appeared and shot him in the head around 8:30 p.m.
