POLICE arrested on Monday a driver for malicious misbehavior and trying to kill his friend at Purok 11 on Davao-Bukidnon Road in Calinan in Davao City.
The suspect was identified as Geronimo Mose Galao Jr., 45, a public utility jeepney (PUJ) driver, resident of Durian Village in Calinan.
Initial investigation conducted by the Calinan police showed Galao was arrested following the complaint of a certain Lea, a fruit vendor from Davao del Norte and transient resident of Calinan, that the suspect tried to kill her husband Roger.
This happened after the suspect had a drinking spree with one Roel.
Galao, who was already intoxicated, approached Lea and maliciously touched her body, that prompted her spouse to accost the suspect. Galao then pulled a gun and fired but missed Roger.
The suspect was arrested at their house, while his wife turned over the .45 caliber pistol of the former to the police. Galao presented a firearm license; however, it did not correspond to the serial number of the recovered firearm.
Recovered from the crime scene were one spent shell and one live ammunition of .45 caliber pistol. The suspect is temporarily detained at the Calinan Police Station.
