Criminal complaints will be filed against the 10 policemen and three village (barangay) watchmen involved in the killing of innocent individuals in a snarled shooting incident last December in Mandaluyong City.

Sr. Supt. Florendo Quibuyen, chief of the Special Investigation Task Group-Shaw (SITG-Shaw), said the police officers and watchmen of Barangay Addition Hills will be charged for reckless imprudence resulting to frustrated homicide and double homicide, Radyo Inquirer 990AM reported.


Two people were killed while two others were injured in that pre-New Year incident. One of the fatalities was identified as Jomar Hayawon.

Last December 28, Hayawon and others were on board a white Mitsubishi Adventure van, which was on its way to the hospital to bring Jonalyn Amba-an, a victim of an earlier shooting also in Mandaluyong City, when the village watchmen and responding policemen shot at them along Shaw Boulevard.
