THE suspect in the shooting of a businessman inside his office in Barangay Casuntingan, Mandaue City last Thursday surrendered to the Sibonga Police Station past 6 p.m. yesterday

.

Suspect Elven Estrera, 30, was accompanied by his friend and PO1 Apolinar Albiso of the Tudela Police Station.

PO3 Ederlino Bacusmo, Sibonga police chief investigator, said Estrera admitted that he shot Joel Chan, 48, in the face out of jealousy. Estrera’s live-in partner works for Chan as his secretary.

“He (Estrera) thought they had a relationship,” said Bacusmo.

After shooting Chan, Estrera went into hiding in Barangay Can-aga, Sibonga in the past three days.

Estrera has relatives in Can-aga but he opted to stay in his friend’s house, who managed to convince him to surrender.

The Mandaue City Police Office operatives then fetched Estrera from Sibonga. (KAL)
