CAMP FLORENDO, La Union – A father fatally shot his son during aconfrontation when the latter came home loaded with alcoholic drinks in Barangay Bateria, San Esteban, Ilocos Sur Wednesday night.

Senior Inspector Augusto Cabello Jr., San Esteban police chief, reported here that the father, Emmanuel Calina, 59, a retired seaman, was trying to pacify his son Tristan Jay, 25, who was shouting it out
with his mother.

Instead of cooling off, the son went berserk and attacked his father with two kitchen knives. However, the father managed to grab his 12-gauge shotgun and shot him twice on the chest which caused his
immediate death.

The father voluntarily surrendered to the police and is now detained at the San Esteban municipal jail. Jun Elias/
