MANILA, PHILIPPINES -- A man was shot dead after taking a 16-year old girl hostage inside an HM transport bus in Manila on October 8 along Taft Avenue.

The unidentified suspect threatened the passengers in the bus and was armed with an ice pick. On the footage taken by a concerned citizen, the frightened passengers fled from the scene by escaping through the windows.

Bus conductor Sonny Canete stated that the hostage taker did not ask for any demands. Instead, he seemed to be out of his well-being and even scared away a male passenger before declaring hostage.

Supt. Albert Barot, chief of Manila Police District station 5 stated that the only negotiation the suspect asked is to have the chance to talk to his mother.

According to the police officer identified as Chief Insp. Dionel Brannon who shot the suspect, he did not hesitate to fire when he noticed that the hostage's life was in danger. As what he describes as a 'judgment call', Brannon seized his advantage and fired a shot.

The hostage fled to safety while the suspect dropped dead. He was then rushed to Philippine General Hospital where he was declared dead-on-arrival.

On the other hand, Manila city Mayor Joseph Estrada praised the Manila police for the quick response to the incident. According in an interview, the incident was over in no less than 30 minutes.
