Food Panda rider shot dead by security guard for putting food on guard’s desk

A food delivery rider died after being shot several times by a security guard outside a bank in Iloilo City on Wednesday (March 31).

The authorities identified the victim as Joemar Sanchez, a Food Panda rider, and the suspect as Argie Solis, a security guard in Malayan Bank Branch along De Leon  St., Baragay Osmena.

Based on the investigation, the crime happened at around 11 am on Wednesday outside the bank where Solis was assigned.

Lt. Col. Joem Malong, Western Visayas regional police spokesperson, said that the victim and the rider had an intense argument after Sanchez put the wet bag of food in his desks causing the paper to be soaked with water.

Sanchez apologized but Solis went mad and pulled his gun out. 

The victim was still able to run but he was chased by Solis until he was shot twice.

“Ang nangyari po, ‘yung rider, dumating siya sa bank para mag-deliver ng pagkain. ‘Yung dala niya, naipatong niya sa podium ng guard. Eh basa, kaya nabasa din yung mga papel sa podium. Dito nagalit ‘yung guard,” said Malong.

Solis fled but was later on arrested by the police in Antique. The authorities are also now working for the revocation of his license as a security guard.

Meanwhile, the fellow FoodPanda riders of Sanchez are seeking justice for his death and asking for financial assistance for his wife and one-year-old child.
