CAMP VICENTE LIM, Laguna–At least five people, three of whom were children, were hurt after a man ran amok and went on a shooting spree in Kawit, Cavite on Friday morning.

The police identified the man as a certain Ronald Bae, said Senior Superintendent Alexander Rafael, Cavite police director, by phone.

He said Bae started shooting bystanders with a .45-caliber gun in Barangay (village) Tabon 1 in Kawit at around 9:30 a.m. for no apparent reason.

The names and the condition of the victims were not immediately available but they were rushed to Kalayaan hospital, also in Kawit.

“We are still finding out if there were other victims brought to other hospitals,” Rafael said.

Responding policemen were able to subdue the man by shooting him. “They have now brought [Bae] to the hospital, as well,” said Rafael.

    Makakatipid ang gobyerno at mawawala ang kriminal kung shoot to kill lahat ng ganyan pati snatcher at magnanakaw na caught in the act.

    yan siguro ang ehemplo ng mga taong binibigyan ng Crame ng license to carry a gun, kasi hindi mahigpit ang ahensya, eh yung anomalya pa, lol. Tama lang na mag karoon ng stricter law in owning a gun.

      ‘dre,marami sa cavite ang baril walang papeles–may papel man yan —pumirma na yun isang bulate sa kukote nung tao.

       Dre, mahigpit at napaka mahal magpa papel ng baril, mahal ang bala para sa pag practice at may bayad din ang range. dahil dyan, yung mga legal na humahawak at hobbyist ng shooting ang mga tunay na sumusunod sa batas. Ang mga loose firearms ang problema ng gobyerno at kaming mga legal na gumagamit ang lubos na nadidisgrasya ng mga balitang ganito. Pero kung may isang legal at practisadong shooter sa insidente, baka dalawa lang ang patay dun,yung unang biktima, at yung salarin.

    yan ang epekto ng shabu.
