    Marasigan died on the spot due to mutiple gunshot wounds, while his brother, who sustained three gunshot wounds on his belly, was rushed to the San Juan Medical Center where he was declared dead on arrival.

    Initial police investigation showed that the siblings, who were on board a gray Mazda sedan with plate number WOU-583, were on V. Cruz St. when two unidentified suspects on board a motorcycle suddenly appeared beside the vehicle and opened fire.

    There was no CCTV camera in the area because of an ongoing housing project.
