Four armed men tried to rob the armored van of the East West Bank in Alabang Town Center in Muntinlupa City shortly before noon Friday (February 10).
The armed suspects opened fire at the armored van as bank security guards were about to collect deposits from Czarina Money Exchange inside the mall. A security guard, who served as escort, was immediately killed while a robber was likewise shot dead.
The other suspects were able to escape. Another wounded security guard, Elmo A. Torreda of Gallantry Security Agency, was rushed to a nearby hospital.
