Quezon village chief faces raps for indiscriminate gun firing on Christmas eve

Three security guards survived after they were shot by still unidentified gunmen in Sariaya town in Quezon province on Saturday night (Nov. 12).


LUCENA CITY — Police are looking for a village chief in San Antonio town in Quezon province who escaped on Christmas Eve after firing a gun multiple times.

Quezon police reported on Sunday, Dec. 25, that a group was celebrating their Christmas party around 4:30 p.m. at the covered court in Barangay Balat Atis when the wife of chief Jose Ferdinand Castillo arrived and informed them that her husband was summoning them.


Rose Yen Carreon and seven other members of the group proceeded to the house of Castillo.


When the group was having a conversation with Catalina Castillo, the wife of the barangay chief, the village official fired his handgun several times as he shouted invectives and ordered his wife to drive the group away.

The police are conducting more investigation as formal complaints of alarms and scandal through illegal discharge of firearms are being prepared against Castillo.

Castillo, who left after the incident, remains at large, said the report.
