A road worker has been shot dead in broad daylight on Saturday after a heated altercation with security guards along the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) in Calamba Laguna.

An initial report from the Calamba police said that the victim, 32-year-old Ronald Santillan was resting just outside the fence of an industrial park on the roadside of SLEX together with his brother.

In a video taken by Santillan's brother, the victim can be seen arguing with two security guards who were instructing them to leave. However, the two refused to do so, arguing that they were not inside the industrial park's premises.

One of the guards was seen putting on his helmet and leaving while the other continued to argue with the brothers. Later on, the guard returned with a firearm and started to fire shots.

Santillan was hit and fell where he stood. The two guards then fled.

Police said one of the security guards was arrested following a hot pursuit operation, while the gunman surrendered together with his lawyer.

Murder charges will be filed against them.
