CALAMBA CITY, Laguna — An unidentified gunman entered a motorshop and, without a word, shot an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in the head right in front of the victim’s son last Saturday afternoon in Barangay 2, here.

Police investigators said they were still searching for clues to determine the motive in the killing of 39-year-old OFW Mario Csar J. Fajardo, of Block 255, Lot 4, Phase 4, Barangay Mamatid, Cabuyao City, this province.

They said Fajardo was with his 20-year-old son Joshua Fajardo, a college student, and of the same address; and their helper Shane Louis Chan, 23, at the motorshop to have their vehicle checked when the incident happened at 5:15 p.m.

Another witness to the killing was Quaioit Alzona, 29, a mechanic, who told probers that the gunman shot Fajardo in the head at pointblank and then fled on foot in a hurry.

Detectives found only on bullet casing at the crime scene, but were still dumbfounded on why the victim was attacked.
