A homicide suspect was shot dead by a lone assailant in Pajac, Lapu-lapu City, Wednesday noon.

Arnel Colasito, a 30-year-old resident of Poro, Camotes was headed to his cousin’s house in barangay Bangcal, Lapu-Lapu City where he stayed for more than two weeks when an unidentified man shot him twice.

Witness said the gunman casually walked towards a waiting motorcycle parked in a satellite market and sped towards barangay Bangkal after committing the crime.

Police found a copy of a resolution from the Provincial Prosecutor that charged Colasito with frustrated homicide. They believe he went into hiding after the charge was filed against him by a neighbor.

Lapu-Lapu City police said they are working with the Camotes police to resolve the murder.
