Police authorities in General Santos City and South Cotabato province have launched a manhunt against two men who shot dead an off-duty police officer Thursday evening. Col. Jomar Alexis Yap, General Santos City police director, strongly condemned the murder of Cpl. Razul Alongan, an intelligence officer of GenSan City Police Station 5. ‘We condemn the senseless and brutal killing of Police Officer Alongan who left two children and a grieving wife,’ Yap said. The gunmen, posing as customers of a roadside eatery in Barangay Fatima of the city, shot dead Alongan, 48, at about 10:30 p.m. ‘The perpetrators sped off onboard their motorcycle towards the direction of Purok Placida, Barangay Calumpang,’ Yap said. Alongan was rushed to the General Santos Medical Center but was declared dead on arrival by attending physicians.
