‘Bully’ shot dead by childhood friend-A A +A
Friday, September 6, 2013
A 22-YEAR-OLD man shot his childhood friend on Thursday evening for always “bullying” him.
The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. at Spolarium St., Barangay Duljo Fatima in Cebu City, said the police.
The victim was identified as Alimar Sumbilon Jabonillo, 23, a resident of Sitio Ponyang, Barangay Duljo-Fatima, Cebu City, while the suspect was Jonathan Ocaba, 22, also a resident of the same village.
“Kababata man nako siya. Suod mi ana niya, di man gani ko mangayo ug suhol ug suguon ko niya (We’re childhood friends. We’re very close. I don’t even ask for anything from him if he asks me to do something),” said Ocaba in an interview Friday morning.
He said though that he was fed up because Jabonillo always bully and call him a “psywar.”
“Sobra naman siya, dugay na ug permi ko niya tawgong psywar. Kung mu-agi ko iya pud ko atngan ug alihan sa iyahang tiil,” he said.
Ocaba admitted that their conflict started a month ago when Jabonillo asked to have a drink with him but he refused, resulting in a fistfight.
With what happened, Ocaba said he decided to buy a .45 caliber pistol, which he used to kill the victim.
The killing happened while Jabonillo was about to buy food from a carenderia/eatery along Spolarium street in Barangay Fatima. Ocaba shot the victim several times from behind.
Bystanders who saw what happened rushed to the area and beat Ocaba, resulting in the suspect’s confinement to the Cebu City Medical Center after receiving several wounds.
Jabonillo, on the other hand, was declared dead on the spot by the responding policemen. He sustained three gunshot wounds in the back of his head.
Investigators recovered from the suspect a caliber .45 pistol with three bullets, seven empty shells of the same handgun, one slug of an undetermined caliber, one ammunition of caliber .9mm, and a cellular phone.
Ocaba was detained at the Cebu City Police Office jail after he was discharged from the hospital. He is now facing a murder charge.
Jabonillo’s cadaver was brought to SureLife Funeral Services. (Jerson B. Rufin and Akimie R. Losorata, PIT interns/Sunnex)
