Another road rage incident led to bloodshed after a motorist murdered a 27-year-old fellow motorist last February 25 in an intense traffic conflict.
The victim was identified as Anthony Mendoza who works as an IT professional at HP (Hewlett Packard). According to the reports by Inquirer, the incident happened at the intersection of Quezon Avenue and D. Tuazon Street. Mendoza drove his motorcycle together with his older brother Michael from Banawe, Quezon City, to buy some car parts.
When he reached the intersection, an SUV nearly hit him and started the heated argument. The driver of the Toyota Land Cruiser with plate number AHA 3454, then pulled out a gun and shot Mendoza in the head. The victim died on the spot after suffering two gunshot wounds. The suspect, on the other hand, drove away instantly and is still at large as of the moment. Authorities are now conducting an investigation and will release the sketch of the suspect who is believed to be around 35-40 years old.
Netizens were brokenhearted over the incident after learning that the victim is preparing for his wedding. His cousin even bought a wedding room for the forthcoming event before the horrible incident.
