Four drug users slain in Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas

Four suspected drug personalities were killed by still unidentified gunmen in separate shooting incidents last Thursday night in the cities of Caloocan, Malabon and Navotas.
Reports said Julianito Noquio Jr., 31, of Barangay Tonsuya, Malabon, was walking along P. Aquino Avenue around 11:50 p.m. when shot repeatedly in his body by one of two gunmen, killing him instantly.
After the attack, they fled on foot towards Paradise Village. Police recovered eight empty shells from unknown caliber of firearm from the crime scene while a bladed weapon and replica of .45 caliber pistol were found by lawmen from the slain victim.
The victim’s father admitted to homicide investigators his son was a former drug user.
In Caloocan, Ernesto Zalun, 48, was sitting in front of his house in Barangay 12 when four armed men on board two motorcycles shot him repeatedly around 10:35 p.m. before fleeing towards an unknown direction.
The victim succumbed to bullet wounds in his body while being rushed to the Caloocan City Medical Center. Four empty shells from a still unknown caliber of firearm were recovered by investigators.
Earlier at around 10:05 p.m., Jayson Rivera, 32, and Zoren Quesio, 20, were talking inside their shanty at the Navotas Fish Port Complex when two men, wearing jackets with hood and face masks, barged in and shot them in their heads and bodies that resulted in their untimely death.
In his report to Navotas Maritime Police head Senior Supt. June Jamolo, homicide investigator SPO1 Ernesto Ravanera Jr. said one of the gunmen allegedly uttered: “Hindi kasi kayo nagre-remit” (in apparent reference to proceeds of illegal drugs sale) before they fled.
Quesio’s live-in partner Rizza Camille Peñapil admitted to the police the victims were former drug users but denied the two were engaged in selling illegal drugs.
She told Supt. Marlon Kamatoy, head of Maritime Police Investigation Unit, the killing was a case of mistaken identity since the former occupants of their shanty, where they are now living, were known drug peddlers.
