EPA photo released by the Dagsa family

The relatives — Councilman Reynaldo Dagsa’s wife, daughter and mother-in-law — are seen standing beside the family’s car, which has lights on, and the gunman, wearing a baseball cap, is bracing himself against the vehicle and pointing his gun at Dagsa. His face is slightly obscured by the gun.

The car was parked along an alley outside the Dagsas’ house. Also in the right corner of the photograph is a man police identified as the assassin’s lookout.

Police said Tuesday that Dagsa was shot seconds later and died of wounds by the time he reached a hospital. His family gave police the photo, which ran on the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s front page Tuesday.

Caloocan city police chief Jude Santos said a man identified as the gunman in the picture was arrested Monday. His accomplice also was arrested in a separate raid in Manila the same day, Santos said.

He said the main suspect was a car thief who was out on bail and likely sought revenge against Dagsa for ordering his arrest last year.
