MANILA, Philippines — A barangay chairman of Teresa town in Rizal was shot dead from pointblank range outside his office Monday morning in a murder captured close-up by a closed circuit television camera.
The footage shows Arvin Dexter Zapanta walking leisurely towards the Barangay San Gabriel hall as a motorcycle with two men onboard approaches him from behind.
Just as the motorcycle passes Zapanta, the man on the backseat draw a pistol and aims it at the back of the village chief’s head.
Zapanta died on the spot.
More CCTV footage also showed the killers circling the village as they waited for their target.
Residents could think of no reason why anyone would want to murder the first-time barangay chairman who, they said, had no known enemies.
