Crime Scene
Five people were killed after armed men barged into a lodging house in Iligan City early Wednesday.

The incident occurred at about 2 a.m., GMA Northern Mindanao's Francis Damit reported on GMA News TV's Balita Pilipinas Ngayon.

Citing closed-circuit television footage, the report said the suspects entered the establishment at 2 a.m., got near the cashier, and got a key.

It also showed the men making the cashier and room boy lie on the floor, and disarming the security guard.

The men then entered a room and shot five people inside. The report initially identified the fatalities as Glaiza Castillano, Muhammad Ali Amerul Bungaros, Vanz Pakinggan, Ashley, and Kia.

Recovered from the area were two sachets of methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) and five aluminum foils.

Police suspect the crime was drug-related.

"Sa nakikita naming ebidensya galing doon sa crime scene, may mga drugs talaga," said PO3 Benjielou Tupas.

Investigation showed two of the suspects checked in, while the other three were their visitors.

The witnesses also said the suspects claimed they were not there to rob the establishment, though they took the employees' mobile phones and some computers. — Joel Locsin/ELR/KG, GMA News
