Security guard in Las Piñas City apprehended for frustrated homicide and violation of the gun ban

Some of you must have read my previous post about a security guard in Parañaque who got arrested. Something similar happened in Las Piñas City, this time it’s about a security guard who got apprehended for homicide and for violating the current ban on guns, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

A security guard was arrested in violation of the Commission on Election’s (Comelec) gun ban and for shooting a man he was arguing with in Las Pinas City early Friday morning (April 8).

Police identified the suspect as Pablito Baculba, 56, a resident of Las Pinas City. He is now confined at the Las Pinas police custodial facility and was charged for violation of the Comelec’s gun ban and frustrated homicide.

The victim, identified as Michael Joquino, was rushed to the Las Pinas District Hospital for a gunshot wound in the stomach.

Police said the incident happened at around 3:00 a.m. at STI Building located along Abel Nosce St., BF Resort Village, Barangay Talon Dos, Las Pinas City.

The police said a heated argument ensued between Baculba and the victim that led to the shooting incident.

A witness reported the incident to the Las Pinas police Talon Sub-Station that led to the arrest of the suspect.

The above report ended stating that a .38 caliber revolver with four pieces of live ammunition and an empty shell were recovered by the police.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a resident of Las Piñas City, what is your reaction about this latest development?
