Former Medellin, Cebu mayor Ricardo Rodriguez Ramirez was shot dead while still under hospital arrest.

Based on reports, still unidentified armed men raided the hospital and disarmed the security guards on duty. They went to Ramirez’s room and shot him multiple times.

The former mayor sustained gunshot wounds on his head and several parts of his body resulting in his death.

Ramirez was arrested in July 2017 due to illegal possession of firearms and was placed under hospital arrest when he felt chest pains.

Authorities continue to further investigate on the incident as well as the pursuit operations against the gunmen.—AAC (with reports from Gladys Toabi)
