A HIGH school student was shot dead while in a drinking spree Sunday afternoon at Panganiban St., Barangay Pahina Central, Cebu City.
The victim was identified as Brenjun Perez, 18, a student and a resident of Barangay Guadalupe, Cebu City. The suspect was only identified as a certain “Abaloco.”
A witness, Brent Perez, uncle of the victim, told the police that he and Brenjun had a drinking spree with some friends and relatives after a Christening celebration when the suspect arrived at the scene and shot Perez once.
Brenjun sustained a gunshot wound on his head and was rushed to Cebu City Medical Center for immediate medical treatment. He was declared dead around 11:50 p.m.
The uncle of the victim said both parties were friends but they engaged in a verbal tussle during confrontation over rude acts a year ago. (Akimie R. Losorata, PIT intern/Sunnex)
