Shooting at Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's residence leaves much unclear
12:30, Tuesday, 26 September, 2017
A 37-year-old major in Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's security force was found dead on Tuesday at 8:50 a.m. local time (0050 UTC) in his room in Malacanang Park, where Duterte's elite security forces have their compound. The compound also includes the president's official residence, known as the House of Hope (Bahay Pangarap), though the two buildings are far away from one another. Major Harin Gonzaga's wife found her husband's body with a gunshot wound to the chest. The head of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) Brigadier General Lope Dagoy said nothing pointed to a struggle as cause of death. "We are ruling out foul play," Dagoy said. "Certainly no foul play." He also added that other PSG did not find out about the shooting until Gonzaga's wife discovered the body. However, Dagoy cautioned that an investigation was still ongoing.
