Cops probe 3 angles
in businessman’s slay


Three angles are being looked into in the killing of businessman Roland Tan in front of his establishment at Narra Street in Barangay Villamonte, Bacolod City, Thursday afternoon.

P/Maj. Renante Jomocan, Station 4 chief, said yesterday that all angles are being considered but, so far, the business, personal grudge, and Tan’s name implicated in illegal drugs motives are being investigated.

The family of Tan waived the request for an autopsy on the body of the victim, Jomocan said.

The body was cremated at Acropolis Gardens in Barangay Bata, Bacolod City, yesterday, he said.

Investigation showed the 58-year-old victim had just boarded his vehicle, parked in front of Crown Agri Infinity Lending Corp., at Capitol Shopping Center when three unidentified suspects shot him at close range.

The suspects, who were wearing face masks, escaped on foot, Jomocan said.

The police have no suspects, so far.

They will view the closed-circuit television camera footage near the crime scene today, Jomocan said.

He said Tan was brought to the Dr. Pablo O. Torre Memorial Hospital but he succumbed to five gunshot wounds in his face and body.

Tan was about to go home to Talisay City, Negros Occidental, when the incident happened.

It was the second fatal shooting in Bacolod City in six days, after the city downgraded to the general community quarantine status on May 16.

Gerald Cuadra, a son of a drug convict, was also gunned down in broad daylight at B.S. Aquino Drive in Barangay 5, Bacolod, last week.*
