AN off duty policeman shot dead an alleged robber who made off with his victim’s bag near a mall in Colon Street, Cebu City, on Wednesday evening.

PO1 Gilbert Cabajar of the Regional Safety Public Batallion (RSPB) was with PO3 Awing Tabayag when they heard gunshots at the area at around 8 p.m. and witnessed the robbery in progress, according to PO2 Nemesio Dinopol, an investigator of the Cebu City Police Office’s Homicide Section.

The still unidentified suspect, who was on board a motorcycle, was spotted grabbing the bag of Jordan Dico, a supervisor of Happy Mart in Colon Street.

The policemen ran toward them just as the robber shot Dico twice.

Cabajar aimed at the suspect and shot him.

The suspect was brought to the Cebu City Medical Center but was declared dead on arrival by physicians, said Dinopol.

Dico, on the other hand, was rushed to Chong Hua Hospital. His condition remained unknown as of 9:30 p.m., said Dinopol.

No other details were given by police investigators.
