Just a thought, but if you are going to shoot someone (and I definitely suggest that you don't) you should probably wait until your murderous act can't be frozen in time for all to see. Talk about a Kodak moment.

A politician in the Philippines who was shot dead while taking a photograph of his family on New Year's Day captured his killer on camera just seconds before the assassin fired the fatal shots.

Reynaldo Dagsa, a 35-year-old district councilor in the metro area of Manila, was taking a photograph of his wife, daughter and mother-in-law outside of his home at the exact moment his killer stepped from behind a nearby car and took aim.

In the photograph, the man is shown standing behind Dagsa's smiling daughter, wearing a black baseball cap backward -- and a cold gaze – as he points his pistol directly at the camera.

The barrel of the pistol is illuminated by the camera's flash.

Just seconds later, Dagsa was shot in the right forearm and the chest. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
