The victim who died on the spot had a gunshot wound on the right side of his face, police said.

The other victim, who sustained a gunshot wound on the head, was rushed to nearby Manila Medical Center but was declared dead on arrival.

Initial investigation showed that three men were walking along Taft corner United Nations Avenue in Ma­nila when one of the two suspects who was wearing a black jacket and black helmet shot the victims near the MPD and the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) office.

After shooting them, the gunmen riding a black Yamaha Mio was seen escaping towards Taft Avenue.

Recovered from the crime scene were 13 fired bullets of unknown caliber.

Meanwhile, two women including one student were hit by stray bul­lets. They were brought to Philippine General Hospital for medical treat­ment.
