SUSPECTED members of the special partisan unit (Sparu) of the New People's Army (NPA) allegedly shot to death an army corporal in Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental, Sunday, November 4.
Killed in the incident was Army Corporal Rex Deramas, assistant deputy detachment commander of Candalanon Civilian Active Auxiliary (CAA) Patrol based at Barangay Kasingan.
Investigation showed that Deramas was about to ride a motorcycle driven by a certain “Sandot,” when three unidentified assailants fired at them at Barangay Trinidad at 8:30 a.m.
Sandot, a member of CAA, was able to survive the attack by jumping from the motorcycle.
Deramas succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds.
Meanwhile, the NPA, in a press statement, claimed the attack at the two detachment camps at Barangays Hinakpan and Bulado on October 30, which resulted to the injury of a member of Regional Mobile Force Battalion-7.
The group also admitted killing Rusty Camenade, a civil security personnel in Moises Padilla, Negros Occidental on October 29. (GYM)
