ZAMBOANGA CITY—An Army sergeant fatally shot himself after firing at a businesswoman in Barangay (village) Malagutay here last Tuesday evening, the police said Wednesday.

Superintendent Luisito Magnaye, the city police director, said both the suicide and his victim were in critical condition at the Brent Hospital.

Major Filemon Tan Jr., spokesperson of the Western Mindanao Command, said the incident took place in Katatagan Mutual Homes around 8 p.m. last Tuesday.


Magnaye said businessman Erlinda Aizon, 52, a resident of Barangay Pasonanca, earlier went to Master Sergeant Arnold Cudal’s house to collect the money the soldier owed her.


However, instead of paying, Cudal, who was assigned to the Western Mindanao Command’s Adjutant’s Office, shot her instead. Cudal was reportedly under the influence of liquor when Aizon went to his house.

Aizon was hit on the shoulder and in the abdomen, according to Magnaye.

“After committing the crime, Cudal shot himself in the head,” Tan said.

The .45 caliber pistol used by Cudal had been recovered along with five empty shells, a live ammunition and two slugs. RAM
