Cebu cop slain in front of wife

MOTORCYCLE-RIDING assassins early yesterday morning shot dead a police sergeant in front of his wife in Toledo City, Cebu.

The killers immediately escaped after shooting S/Sgt. Junard Cinco, a 39-year-old member of the Cebu Police Provincial Office’s Provincial Intelligence Branch.

Cinco was shot on the highway in Bgy. Media Once, Toledo City at 8:10 a.m. yesterday.

Police Regional Office 7 director Brig. Gen. Debold Sinas said the victim was driving a motorcycle, with his wife as passenger, when shot.

The policeman’s wife was unhurt during the attack.

The couple were on their way to Gaisano Grand Mall when  the killers tailed them and repeatedly fired at the policeman after he briefly stopped in the area.

Witnesses said that the gunmen fled towards the nearby Bgy. Das.

“We are in the process of looking into the motive and identities of the killers,” Sinas said.
