MANILA (AFP) - Two men on a motorcycle killed five people in an apparent shooting spree in a suburb of the Philippine capital on Sunday, a police official said.

Investigators are still trying to establish the motive behind what appeared to be random shootings, said Inspector Roldante Sarmiento, deputy chief of the neighbourhood in Quezon City, a suburb of Manila, where the killings took place.

"There were five people in four different locations. They had no connection. They were just bystanders. We have no idea why they were shot," he told AFP.

"It looks like a shooting spree," he said.
