The victim who is a native of the island municipality of Almagro, Samar, is identified, in the police report, as Sam Castil y Lopez, male, 22 years old and presently residing in Barangay Aguit-itan, this city.
“Upon arriving thereat, responding PNP personnel saw a lifeless body of the victim with multiple gunshot wonds on the different parts of his body,” the initial report of the PNP states.

Initial information alleged that the victim was loading scrap materials to the truck, when suddenly a lone lone rider parked his black motorcycle in front of the junkshop, alighted from his motorbike, approached the suspect with a drawn handgun of yet unknown caliber. Upon nearing the victim, the suspect fired at him several times.

Seeing the victim fall to the concrete pavement, the suspect walked back to his motorbike and fled to an unknown direction.

Meanwhile, the police are still in the process of investigating as to the identity of the suspect.
