Ilocos Cop kills 2, Injuries another in Shooting Spree

CAMP FLORENDO, La Union – A policeman and a non-uniformed personnel were killed while another policeman was wounded when a fellow cop went on shooting spree inside the police station in Sigay, Ilocos Sur last Monday.

The fatalities were identified as SPO2 Leborio Dangalen and Mark Jay Barrientos, while the injured companion was SPO2 Gilbert Rabang, according to police reports here.

The suspect was identified as PO1 Roel Parragas. All the victims and the suspect are assigned at the Sigay municipal police station.

Reports showed that the victims along with PO1 Leo Aoay were eating lunch when the suspect came and shot them several times with a 9-MM pistol.

The victims were rushed to a nearby hospital but Dangalen and Barrientos were declared dead on arrival. Both suffered gunshots on their head and bodies.

Parragas has been detained at the town’s jail facility while the the incident is still being investigated. JUN ELIAS/
