NBI in deep mourning
The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is in deep mourning following the death of its Counter-Terrorism Division chief around midnight on Monday.
Raoul Manguerra suffered a gunshot wound on the stomach and was subsequently pronounced dead on arrival that night at a nearby hospital.
Responding police claimed Manguerra was found at around 11:39 p.m. slumped inside his office with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
Authorities investigating Manguerra’s death said they are still ‘clueless’ what led to his fatal shooting Monday night right inside the NBI-CTD office Taft Avenue, Manila.
MPD Homicide chief Police Captain Henry Navarro said they could not zero in on the possible existence of a gunman who might shot at the victim as the NBI was doing its internal investigation when the incident happened.
On the police report, it was mentioned that the victim was suffering from a stage 3 a colon cancer.
It was also learned from Navarro that the victim’s family members “opted to let the NBI do the investigation.”
