Ateneo HS teacher shot dead

An Ateneo High School teacher was shot dead on his way home on July 19 by an unidentified gunman.

Members of the Ateneo community expressed grief and sadness at the death of Ateneo de Manila teacher Emmanuel “Em-J” Jose Pavia, 24, who sustained three gunshot wounds in the head and back.

Marikina City Police said they were looking into the possibility that Pavia’s anti-illegal drugs advocacy may have something to do with his death. But initial reports said Pavia was helping somebody who was being robbed that night when the gunman shot him along St. Joseph Avenue at Dela Costa Homes in Barangay Barangka, Marikina City.
