AFTER shooting his daughter, a father shot himself in the head at 9:10 p.m. on Monday, June 17, 2024, in Barangay Lamacan, Sibonga, southern Cebu.

The victim, Emie Marie Carbonel, 28, was brought to Deiparine Community Hospital in Sibonga for treatment.

Her father, Amelito Carbonel, 52, was rushed to the Carcar City Provincial Hospital, where he was declared dead at 4 a.m. of the next day, Tuesday.

According to Sibonga police under station commander Captain Fort Anthony Valdez, Amelito went to his daughter’s room, which is separate from their house, to inquire about her mother’s whereabouts.

When Emie Marie replied that her mother had gone to her parents’ house, the suspect told the victim to fetch her mother and tell her to go home.

Emie Marie reportedly ignored her father and chose to support her mother instead which sparked an argument between the two.

Amelito then pulled out a .357 revolver and shot his daughter in the rear, and then shot himself in the head.

Lamacan Barangay Captain Severino Cabrera said before the shooting, Amelito’s wife confided to him that the suspect had attacked her and Emie Marie and also struck her head with a flashlight.

As a result, the victims were given a 15-day barangay protection order against Amelito. / DVG, TPT
