Guard dies in shooting at Duterte's presidential compound

Shooting incident near Philippine president's residence officer injured

A shooting incident was reported near the residence of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, the Presidential Security Group said.

Asked if the palace was concerned, Abella said: "Of course it's a matter of concern but we need to clarify what it's all about". "Certainly no foul play". "When she arrived in the quarters [of the security], she found her husband lying dead", Dagoy told reporters, adding that the body had a bullet hole near his heart, as broadcast by CNN Philippines.

President Duterte is open to an investigation initiated by the Office of the Ombudsman on his alleged hidden wealth but is hopeful that probe will be impartial. Aquino said that the unit has been investigating the shooting.

Duterte is notoriously unpredictable and often causes confusion with sudden changes to his crowded public schedules, which typically start in the afternoon and can run as much as four hours late, often because of his long, unscripted speeches.

In a related development, a panel of the Philippine National Police (PNP) on Tuesday released its findings that three policemen of suburban Caloocan City in Metro Manila "conpired to murder" the son of an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in a anti-drug operation. Every week he spends long weekends in Davao City, starting on Friday or even earlier.

Malacanang Park is close to Duterte's Bahay ng Pagbabago residence, separated from his Malacanang palace by the Pasig river.
