DAVAO CITY (Mindanao Examiner / 04 Jul) – A Philippine police officer was gunned down in a daring broad daylight attack on Wednesday in the southern city of Davao, authorities said.

Two gunmen shot Senior Inspector Godofredo Guiritan in front of a pharmacy in the downtown Davao at around 2.30 p.m., police said.

Guiritan died instantly from fatal shots in the head. The assailants escaped after shooting, police said.

No group claimed responsibility for the attack, but extra-judicial killings is rampant in Davao City.
