POLICE filed charges before the City Prosecutor's Office of Davao against a man who killed a minor last November 12 at Zone 1, Km. 13, Panacan, Davao City.
Facing murder charges is Cypo Dimangadap Pasod, of legal age and a resident of Doña Mercedez, Panacan.
Pasod was charged for killing a minor identified as April Pacomeos dela Torre.
Investigation conducted by Sasa police revealed that the incident happened around 9:20 p.m. The victim was coming from his house with his girlfriend only identified as Gina (true identity withheld for being a minor).
Dela Torre was about to take his girlfriend home to her residence at Estores Compound in Malagamot, Panacan when the respondent along with an unidentified suspect approached him and shot him several times.
Dela Torre was killed on the spot.
Further investigation revealed that Pasod was a former lover of Gina. Gina told the police that she was already warned by Pasod that he will kill Dela Torre if the latter will continue to date her.
Despite the warnings of Pasod, Dela Torre continued to date Gina which may have irked the respondent that led to the shooting.
Police charged Pasod through regular filing as they are yet to hold the respondent in their custody.
