MANILA — Police in the southern Philippines have arrested a man accused of killing two people during a delivery dispute.
A Philippine police officer in Manila said the arrest was the result of a two-day investigation into the death of a customer and the subsequent shooting death of the other customer in the eastern city of Makati, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of Manila.
The incident took place around 10:30 a.m.
(1600 GMT) Sunday in the city of Sarangani, about 60 kilometers (35 miles) north of Manila, the police officer, Jose Ceballos, said.
The victim was in the store when two men entered the store and confronted the customer, Cebalos said.
A fight ensued and one of the men shot the customer in self-defense, Cembalos said, adding that the other man who was wounded died at the hospital.
The investigation is ongoing, he said.
Police did not immediately provide further details on the identities of the two people killed.
The police officer was not identified by name in a news release, but local media identified him as Daniel Efrain Antonio Jr.
In a separate incident, a man was killed after a man tried to steal his gun, police said in a statement.
The suspect fled and an investigation is underway, police added.
