Man Shot And Killed Along Harrison Road In Baguio City Last Tuesday Morning

A man was fatally shot by still unidentified men along Harrison Road in Baguio City in the early morning of July 29 (Tuesday). According to a police report by Station 7 of the Baguio City Police Office, the shooting occurred at the waiting shed just beside the entrance to the Jadewell Parking grounds along Harrison Road.

The victim has been identified as a certain Alfonso Fontanos Suringa alias Al. Suringa is 36 years old and a resident of Camanggaan, Virac in the municipality of Itogon in Benguet. Upon verification that the victim was indeed Suringa, the girlfriend and a sibling went immediately to the funeral house where the victim was kept.

According to the police report, Suringa was playing a game of tong-its with two taxi drivers at the waiting shed along Harrison Road when two men approached and shot him five times. The police are still investigating as to the identities and motive of the suspects.

As per police records, the victim has committed several crimes in the past. He had cases involving theft, attempted theft and vagrancy. These happened between 2011 and 2013. With that said, there's a possibility that his tragic fate at the waiting shed may be connected to these previous crimes or any unrecorded crimes that he may have committed.
