A Japanese tourist was killed in an ambush in Cebu City Tuesday, police said.

Hiroshi Kosaka, 49, was on his way to the airport for an early morning flight to Manila when he was shot by two men riding on a motorcycle, police said.

The suspects had apparently waited for Kosaka’s vehicle at a stoplight and shot him point-blank before speeding away, police said.

The driver of the vehicle was unharmed and reported the incident to police.

“We are investigating the motive of the attack,” said city police chief Senior Superintendent Rodel Calungsod on Manila radio.

Random shootings on crime-ridden Philippine streets are increasingly common, but attacks of foreign tourists are rare.
