A reader reports that H3 Autoworks co-owner Bong Hilario was shot dead by an unidentified gunman at a little past noon today inside his shop's garage. H3 Autoworks is a car shop located in Bankers Village in Antipolo. Hilario co-owned the shop with his two brothers, hence the "H3" name.
According to Christopher Joseph Misanes, who lives in the same village and who took these photos after the crime scene had been cleaned, the incident happened at around 12:30pm today. Hilario apparently was sitting on a bench inside his shop when a man arrived on a motorcycle. The man then entered the shop, looked for the victim and started shooting the latter at close range. A reported seven bullets were fired at Hilario, including his head. Hilario, according to Misanes, died on the spot.
"This is another great loss to the motoring community after Enzo Pastor," Misanes said. "These brutal killings must come to an end."
We are still unaware of any possible motive in the murder.
