Police Staff Sergeant Allan Guimpayan, who is assigned to the Taytay Municipal Police Station, was eating dinner at a tapsihan and pares house when he was shot by four suspects.
While eating, a group of people approached him and for no apparent reason, an altercation ensued.
The suspects conspiring with one another attacked and mauled the victim prompting him to repel the attack. However, with the overwhelming force, the suspects were able to forcibly take his service firearm and shoot the victim several times.
