Teenager shot dead in Liloan cemeteryCebu Daily News
A 16-year-old boy was shot dead allegedly by a 43-year-old man whom he had a drinking session in barangay Tayud, Liloan town, northern Cebu.
Jaymart Pilapil was found with a gunshot wound in the body inside the Calero Memorial Cemetery.
Police said an operation to arrest the suspect Jolita Lastima, 43, is in progress.
Police said Pilapil, Lastima and Disodado Alcopin had a drinking session around 6 p.m. last Saturday in a sari-sari store owned by Virgie Monicet.
While the three were drinking, Alcopin and Lastima argued. Pilapil pacified the two men. Police said it was not clear what the argument was all about. Because of the argument, Monicet decided to close the sari-sari store.
Alcopin, Lastima and Pilapil later went to the Calero Memorial Cemetery across the sari-sari store.
A lifeless Pilapil was found inside the cemetery at past 6 a.m. yesterday.
Pilapil’s body was brought to the town’s Maturan Funeral Homes.
Police said no witnesses came forward to describe what happened. Policemen went to Lastima’s house in barangay Calero but he was not there.
Recovered from Lastima’s house were an empty shell of a .38 revolver, a green T-shirt and a white polo with blood stains, said SPO4 Winrie Pilapil of the Liloan police./REPORTER RHEA RUTH V. ROSELL
