Photo of alleged gun-poking scene on Edsa surfaces on Web, goes viral
MANILA, Philippines – A photo of several men aiming what looked like guns at a vehicle somewhere on Edsa surfaced on the Internet Monday afternoon.
A motorist posted on Twitter a photo of about four armed men seemingly assaulting the driver of a sport utility vehicle while three other cars surrounded it.
But the motorist said it wasn’t clear what happened before the gun-wielding men scrambled out of their vehicles and pointed their weapons at the SUV.
“I honesty don’t know exactly what happened, but cars behind the ones in the photo stopped (and) then swerved to avoid the accident,” she said.
A Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Metrobase officer, who requested anonymity, told INQUIRER.net over the phone that reports reached their office that a closed van collided with a Hi-Ace van between Edsa-Ortigas and Santolan.
The officer said local MMDA traffic enforcers helped in assisting the apparent road rage incident.
Meanwhile, a Mandaluyong City Police officer said the incident reached their office but when responding policemen went to Edsa, the traffic altercation reportedly had been settled.
