Cops arrest shooter who missed target

MANILA, Philippines — A 21-year-old man who tried to shoot another man but missed has been arrested by the police in Caloocan City.

Jay-Ar Nivalip now faces a charge of attempted homicide after he fired at Robert James Ordoñez, 25, who was standing outside his house in Barangay 176, Bagong Silang, Caloocan City, around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday.


Ordoñez, however, escaped unhurt after he managed to run inside his house as the suspect fled.


The shooting was reported to the Caloocan police which arrested the suspect, also a resident of the barangay, on the same night. Recovered from Nivalip were an Armscor .45-caliber pistol and four bullets.

Scene of the Crime Operatives also found four cartridges at the site.

The Caloocan police chief, Col. Noel Flores, said that Nivalip was known in the barangay so they were able to arrest him immediately.

Flores added that they were still investigating the motive behind the shooting because both the suspect and victim have yet to give their statements. —Nikka G. Valenzuela

Trike driver injured by drunk driver

MANILA, Philippines — A 71-year-old tricycle driver suffered head injuries after a car struck his vehicle which crashed into a parked van on Sunday night in Navotas City.


A police report said Ricardo San Pedro was headed home on his tricycle around 10:15 p.m. when a gray Suzuki Ciaz sedan overtook him on M. de Vera Street.

But the car driver, Malabon resident Ralf Alcalde, sideswiped the tricycle, making San Pedro lose control of his vehicle. As a result, it hit a parked government vehicle, a Toyota Avanza, according to traffic investigation unit head, Senior Master Sgt. Guiama Ibrahim.

Inside the Avanza were Cpls. Joseph Severilla and J-Rossillino Lorenzo from the Navotas police’s Mobile Patrol Unit.

Instead of stopping, Alcalde escaped toward C4 Road but was caught after he was chased by Severilla and Lorenzo.
