MANILA, Philippines—National Capital Region Police Office chief, Police Director Leonardo Espina ordered the relief of the police community precinct commander of Manila Police District’s station 4, following the shooting incident in the University Belt area Tuesday evening which resulted to the deaths of two Far Eastern University students.

In a radio interview Wednesday, Espina said he ordered MPD director, Chief Superintendent Alex Gutierrez, to relieve PCP commander, Senior Inspector Antonio Naag, of his post “for not aggressively preventing crimes from happening.”

Two FEU students were killed, while another was injured, after they were shot by a still unidentified suspect outside their campus along R. Papa near corner N. Reyes streets in Sampaloc, Manila around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, Police Officer 2 Crispino Ocampo, MPD-homicide investigator said.

The two fatalities were later identified as Gerald Ramos, 21; and Juan Paulo Nepomuceno, 17; while the injured victim was identified as Adrian Joseph Santiago, 17. All were said to be members of a cheering squad.

Ocampo said the victims were on the way to a gymnasium along R. Papa Street when the suspect “treacherously” shot the victims in different parts of their bodies. He fled after the incident.

The suspect was described to be standing 5’4” to 5’5” in height, medium build, and with long hair, Ocampo said.

He said Ramos sustained gunshot wounds at the right portion of his chest and neck, while Nepomuceno, likewise, sustained gunshot wounds on the right side of his chest, neck, and at the back of the head. Both of them died later that evening at the University of Santo Tomas Hospital.

The wounded Santiago, on the other hand, was shot at the back, and is currently recuperating at Mary Chiles Hospital.

While Ocampo said they have yet to determine the motive behind the attack, a radio report said authorities are looking into a fraternity-war angle.

    Dapat kasi yung frat wars, suntokan na lang, sampalan at kurotan.  Kung mey ambush eh, para mag-ahit sa kilay ng kalaban – mag mukhang matrona ang lalaki kinabukasan.

    Sa paggamit ng baril, magmukhang kriminal ang mga frat. 

    Sana mey mga pulis na palaging standby sa U-Belt, para maka-1st time ang kanilang bagong 9mm sa mga gagong frat men na gumagamit ng baril.

    How do you prevent crime 100%? This is merely to say that police did something on the matter, albeit just a reactive one.

    Sa sobrang luwag ng pagbili ng baril ay kahit sino nalang basta may pera pwede na bumili ng mga ito, mamimili ka lang kung anong kalibre. Kaya hindi nakapagtataka  na halos lahat ng nagaganap na patayan ay baril ang ginagamit.

    • tukmoldinako

      agree, ako sa iyo, maluwag na pagbenta ng baril. napagusapan na ito nuon, pero alam mona sa systema natin , kapag mainit lang ang balita, pera anu na kaya ang ginawa sa gun shop na kahit sino , tingi tingi pa ang bili ng bala at baril, nakunan yan ng video , kaso si General ang me ari kaya tuloy na naman ang dating gawi, hindi siguro ngayon kasi me nangyari na naman. he he he

      • maniniyot kho

        Pare kapag hindi nalimitahan  ang pagbibinta ng mga baril, balang araw  halos  lahat ng mga civilian ay magkakaroon nito. Ma iimagine mo kung anong mangyayari kung ang mga  jeepney driver, tricycle driver, mga  vendors,  mga tindero ng balot, etc..ay magkakaroon ng baril.  Yong mga tahimik nating mamamayan ay bibili narin ng baril para ipagtanggol ang sarili.

    • Flipsurge

      Maluwag ba sa bentahan? Alam mo ba ang requirements para bumili ng baril? At alam mo ba na karamihan sa krimen e loose firearms ang ginagamit?

      • maniniyot kho

        Kung gusto mong malaman ang mga requirements magpunta ka sa mga gunstore o sa mga ads. Paano mo nalaman na karamihan sa ginagamit sa krimen ay mga loose firearms?

    Hindi lang dapat ang mga taga presinto ang na-relieve.
    Pati kayong mga pulis na sa itaas.
    Responsabilidad ninyo rin yan di ba?
    Kawawa naman ang bansa kung puro na lang alipores ang sasalo sa kapalpakan ninyo.

  • boybakal

    Espina is becoming the Mr. Relieve.
    Crime committed in their area, solution Relieve the Commander.
    Why not use your brain once in a while and devise a plan that would prevent commission of the crime.
    Relieving a commander will not prevent a crime much more solve it.

  • delacruzjuana31

    It is a true item on the part of Mr. Espina. You cannot just relieved without due process. You are washing your hands on the problem. Find a solution why crime is happening in the area. You are a police officer to implement the law, to protect, to serve and find ways to resolve crimes in areas of concerned.
