Another riding-in-tandem shooting took place Monday night wounding former teen actor John Wayne Sace, and killing his friend, identified as Erik Sabino in Pasig City. Sabino was declared dead on arrival at Rizal Medical Center.
The two were said to be waiting for someone along Dr. Sixto Avenue when two unidentified suspects repeatedly fired at them.
Sace, a former member of the dance group AnimE together with brothers Rayver and Rodjun Cruz, Mhyco Aquino, Emman Abeleda, Sergio Garcia and Mico Aytona, sustained a waist injury from a single bullet. He is under observation and heavily guarded at the moment as the cause of the shooting is possibly drug-related.
The Philippine National Police (PNP) confirmed that both victims are in the watch list for allegedly pushing drugs.
In 2015, Sace admitted he was hooked on drugs because of his posse. He last worked on TV5’s Move It, hosted by Jasmine Curtis-Smith and former child actor DJ Tom Taus.
