A retired police officer was shot dead right in front of his residence in Quezon City on Wednesday. Police Officer 3 Elegio Pascual of Area 5, Sitio Cabuyao, Barangay Sauyo in Novaliches sustained two gunshot wounds in the chest. While Pascual’s family maintained having known no enemy, investigation disclosed that Pascual appeared to have gotten the ire of some people as he dared anyone to put up a fight every time he gets drunk. Pascual was assigned at Headquarters Support Service (HSS) in Camp Crame in Quezon City before he retired from the Philippine National Police (PNP) two years ago.
