Investigation showed that Sytin had just disembarked from his vehicle and was walking towards the hotel at 7:45 a.m. when he was shot by a gunman who was still unknown.
Coronel said the gunman was waiting for Sytin outside the hotel.
"Apparently, mahigit isang po na naghihintay speaker yung gunman. Naghihintay is in the vicinity of Kung Sino Yung dumadating, "(The gunman apparently waited more than an hour. He waited and watched who came) Coronel said in an interview on the dzMM.
Witnesses said the gunman had a bandana or handkerchief covering his face.
Coronel said they were reviewing CCTV footage to make a description of the suspect and identify him.
They will also coordinate with witnesses and Sytin guards to make a physical description of the suspect.
Coronel said that Sytin's guards, who were also reportedly shot, were in stable condition. / cbb
