The suspect behind the road rage killing in Quezon City has been already identified by the Quezon City Police District (QCPD).
On Tuesday (February 28, 2017), QCPD director Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar named the gunman behind the road rage killing in Quezon City last Saturday (February 25, 2017). The suspect was identified as Fredison Atienza, 45-year-old, and a high-roller poker player.
The QCPD director showed the photo of the suspect in a press conference with some reporters on Tuesday. Using a camera footage, the exact plate number of the Toyota Land Cruiser drove by Atienza was identified as AHA 3458 and not AHA 3454.
The incident happened at the corner of D. Tuazon street and Quezon Avenue in Barangay Doña Josef on Saturday, around 3:15 pm in the afternoon. The SUV driver and the motorcycle driver were both involved in an altercation, which leads to shooting.
Atienza has allegedly shot the motorcycle driver identified as Anthony Mendoza, 27-year-old, an Information Technology (IT) professional working at Hewlett-Packard (HP). The victim was driving a Yamaha Fino motorcycle together with his brother when the suspect shoots him after the heated argument. Mendoza died at the scene of the incident due to a fatal shot on his head.
Eleazar said that with the help and coordination of Land Transportation Office (LTO), they were able to identify the suspect and the owner of the mistaken plate was already cleared. He also said that Atienza has 2 guns with expired registration documents.
The authorities went to the house of Atienza, but they on found his wife and daughter. The police chief urges Atienza to voluntarily surrender to authorities for his own safety in an ongoing manhunt operation of QCPD.
