Two men were shot and killed Friday afternoon in a drug deal that went awry in a suburban village in Bayugan City, Agusan del Sur, police said Saturday.
Police identified the victims as Kheddy Joy Algabre, 27, and Dawndi Tubo, 22, both from Bayugan.
The gunman was identified only as “Tintin.”
Algabre and Tubo arrived in Purok 1B, Barangay Taglatawan, on a motorcycle driven by Junvic Asis, 19, to meet with Tintin, police said.
While trying to close a deal, the victims and Tintin argued heatedly, and Tintin shot the two. Asis ran away, leaving his motorcycle behind.
Tintin fled after the shooting.
