MANILA, Philippines — A man was shot dead in Barangay Bagong Silang, Caloocan City at midnight on Sunday, according to the Northern Police District (NPD).

The incident was reported at around 12:20 a.m., according to Cpl. Francis Bryan Sagmaquen of the Caloocan CityPolice station.

He said the man, still unidentified as of this writing, was apparently sitting on a plastic chair in an alley off Aratiles Street in Phase 3, Bagong Silan, when shot.

The man was still on the chair, slightly leaning towards his right when the police arrived there.

He died on the spot, but it was not yet clear how many times he had been shot, Sagmaquen said.

The body was turned over to a funeral parlor after members of the Scene of the Crime Operation (SOCO) had examined the area.
