AUTHORITIES are considering various motives, including personal grudge and love triangle, behind the killing of a 30-year-old helper who was shot in the head in front of his live-in partner in Malabon City.

Malabon police chief P/Col. Albert Barot said investigators are still conducting a follow-up investigation to determine the real motive of the lone gunman in shooting to death Cristalino Valino, who was shot twice in the head at close range in front of his live-in partner Sunday evening in Brgy. Tonsuya.

Station Investigation and Detective Management Section (SIDMS) chief P/Maj. Ronald Carlos said the victim, along with his live-in partner Airralyn Magdaraog, 26, both residing at 0953 Samaton, C. Perez St. Brgy Tonsuya were walking along Pilapil St. at around 9:16 p.m. when a lone gunman suddenly appeared and shot the victim twice point blank, killing him instantly.

Magdaraog, who was left unharmed, shouted for help while the suspect casually walked towards his cohort who was driving their getaway motorcycle and sped away towards unknown direction.

Responding elements of Police Sub-Station-5, along with operatives of SIDMB at Follow-Up Unit led by Maj. Carlos conducted dragnet operation for possible identification and arrest of the suspects while elements of the Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) recovered two empty shells and one fired bullet for still unknown caliber of firearm from the crime scene.
