Fatal Shooting Leaves Man Dead in Bloodied Pedicab at Baseco Compound

Man Dead in Pedicab

In a tragic incident at Barangay 649, Baseco Compound, Manila early Thursday morning, residents discovered a man dead inside a bloodied pedicab, the victim of a fatal shooting. Here are some details from the report of ABS-CBN News.

Details of the Incident

An anonymous resident reported that a loud gunshot startled the community around 2 AM. “The gunshot was deafening, and it caught me off guard. When I opened my door, I saw several young men running away. Upon stepping outside, I discovered that the man in the pedicab had been shot,” they recounted.

The resident did not witness the identity of the shooter.

Locals revealed that the victim was a familiar face in the area, often seen sleeping in a pedicab borrowed from a neighbor. His sudden death has left the community in shock and disbelief.

Authorities informed the victim’s family soon after the incident. His sibling, speaking cautiously, mentioned not being aware of any ongoing conflicts or personal disputes that might have led to the shooting. “We rarely interacted closely, so I’m unsure if he had any enemies,” they shared.

The victim’s aunt, reflecting on his life, portrayed him as someone who, despite past troubles, had no involvement in drug-related activities. “He may have had disagreements with others, perhaps those unfamiliar with him. He was a good-hearted person, but he struggled with personal challenges,” she said.

Legal Proceedings and Investigations

Expressing grief and a call for justice, the victim’s aunt appealed for the perpetrator to come forward. “We are at a loss as to why this happened. He was a human being with a life. I hope the person responsible realizes the gravity of their actions and surrenders, so justice can be served for my nephew,” she pleaded.

Authorities from the Baseco Police Station have refrained from disclosing detailed information, citing ongoing investigations and follow-up operations into the shooting incident.

The community remains on edge as they await further developments in the case, hoping for answers to the tragic loss that has shaken their neighborhood.
