The head of the National Bureau of Investigation’s (NBI) counterterrorism division died Tuesday dawn (December 8) from a gunshot wound to his stomach, the agency’s top official said.

NBI director Eric Distor confirmed the death of Raul Manguerra and said the circumstances surrounding his passing are being investigated.

“We mourn his passing. He is one of our decorated CTD operative who was instrumental in the capture of 39 Abu Sayyaf members. He also led his men in preventing attempted terror attacks in the country,” Distor said.

Manguerra was reportedly alone in his office when he was shot Monday night (December 7). He was brought to a hospital for treatment but succumbed to complications from the gunshot wound.
