A policeman assigned at Hinobaan PNP shot dead a person who allegedly mauled his brother- in-law around 1:30 in the afternoon Sunday at Tupas Beach Resort in Purok Tabuk Suba in Barangay 1, Hinobaan town.

Police Senior Inspector Leomel Gonzaga, Hinobaan PNP chief said the cop was Police Officer 1 Regan Madrasia, 36, married of Barangay 2, Hinobaan after they responded to the said incident.

The victim was identified as Vicente Rola Labangon, 37, married of Purok Tabuk Suba, Barangay 1.

He sustained gunshot wound in the head from a service firearm of Madrasia, a Glock 17 .9mm.

Investigation disclosed that the suspect mauled Madrasia’s brother-in-law identified as John Rolly Caña, 24 of Sitio Vasquez, Barangay 2, Hinobaan.

Madrasia reportedly came to the rescue of his brother-in-law to pacify them but the victim uttered threatening words to quote “ andaman nyo lang kay lambatan ta kamo sa gwa” knowing the victim is a resident of the place.

The victim boarded his motorcycle and sped off while Madrasia tried to prevent him. He then drew his firearm and shot the victim hitting him in the head.
