Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 30) — Two suspects in the fatal shooting of a traffic enforcer in Tanza, Cavite surrendered to authorities on Tuesday, according to provincial police.

The Cavite Police Provincial Office said alleged gunman Joseph Llagas and his companion Aries Carlos surrendered to Cavite Gov. Juanito Victor Remulla at around 10 a.m., and are now under the custody of Tanza Municipal Police Station.

Authorities said Llagas shot traffic enforcer William Mentes Quiambao thrice in the back of the head last Sunday after a heated argument.

Quiambao had apprehended Llagas, who was supposedly driving a motorcycle while drunk.

Quiambao was brought to a hospital but was declared dead on arrival, police said.
