Killers on motorcycle shoot Manila policewoman dead

A female police officer was shot to death by two unidentified motorcycle-riding suspects in Sta. Cruz, Manila, late Sunday night.

The Manila Police District said PO1 Jorsan Marie Alafriz was driving her car along Recto Avenue and was on her way to work at the Barbosa Police Community Precinct when two suspects drove up to her car and shot her at close range.

Alafriz crashed her car into several passenger tricycles after the shooting. She was rushed to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival, sustaining multiple gunshot wounds to the face and chest.

Police officials said Alafriz was new to the Barbosa Precinct, as she was assigned to it just five months earlier. MPD investigators recovered over a dozen 9-mm casings from the crime scene.
