Police identified the suspect as Jhones Hilado, 28, a resident of Barangay 3, Burgos Street, La Carlota City, and temporarily staying at Villa Servando, Barangay Singcang-Airport.

Major Eugene Tolentino, commander of Police Station 8, said yesterday the suspect was arrested after he threatened Japeth Adrian Segador, 28, of the said village.

He said Hilado, a dismissed Philippine Marine, was renting Segador's house and used to show his firearm inside the house.

He added that Segador's family was planning to end Hilado's lease contract because of his bad attitude.

Police recovered from Hilado's possession a .45 Colt Pistol with one magazine and loaded with five live ammunition of .45 pistol.
