CEBU CITY, Philippines — A 34-year-old public school teacher died in the hospital after he was shot and wounded in front of his boarding house in Sitio Abapo, Barangay Mactan in Lapu-Lapu City at past 7 p.m. on July 5.

Alfredo Bonghanoy Amit, a teacher of Buaya Elementary School, suffered gunshot wounds in the body, after he was shot twice by a motorcycle-riding assailant, said Police Staff Sergeant Marlu Britania, Mactan Police Precinct investigator, in a phone interview with CDN Digital.

Amit, who is from Barangay Talima on Olango Island in Lapu-Lapu City, was rushed to the hospital by his roommates at the boarding house.

He, however, died a few hours later.

The gunman fled on his motorcycle after the attack.

He said they also found two empty shells of a 9 mm pistol at the crime scene.
