MANILA, Philippines — A Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) personnel was arrested for illegally firing his gun while drinking with a group of men in the early hours of Tuesday, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) said.

According to the NCRPO, a barangay official heard a gunshot at around 1:00 am on R. Papa Street in Sampaloc, Manila, which prompted him to go to the source of the incident.
