ILOCOS, Philippines —  A seaman was killed after he was shot inside his home in Brgy. Duplas San Juan, La Union, around 8:00 p.m. last Saturday night.

The authorities identified the victim as Edgar Ursua Nana, 33 years old.

According to the initial reports of San Juan police, five armed men in bonnets entered the home of the victim.

They took more than $2,000 or around P100,000 cash and 2 cellphones and then shot the victim.

Meanwhile, also killed in gunshot inside their home in Conception, Tarlac are father and son Jaime Baquing and Chody Baquing last Saturday morning.

The victims’ family and some witnesses said they heard the victims and 3 suspects fighting about sand before the shooting happened.

The suspects immediately escaped in a delivery van of an online shop but were blocked by police.

“Nakita po itong van dito sa may subdivision sa may Barangay Alfonso kung saan pinlug daw ito ng ating tropa at paghintong-paghinto po ng sasakyan agad bumaba po ang isang tao at pinaputukan ang ating tropa kaya napilitan po tayong magkaroon ng putukan at lumaban,” said Chief of Police Concepcion PSupt. Miguel Guzman.

The warrantless arrest of heinous crimes convicts freed under the good conduct time allowance (GCTA) law will push through if they still refuse to surrender, according to Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles.

Nograles said the Philippine National Police (PNP) is still finalizing the list of GCTA disqualified convicts before they can conduct a warrentless arrest. This is due to the number of inmates still surrendering to authorities.

“They are just going over the list again and again, making sure na wala silang nakaligtaan. Making sure na wala namang ipapasok sa final list na hindi naman dapat, and you have to remember marami na up to now, marami na ang nagsusurrender ( They are just going over the list again and again, making sure they do not miss anyone. [They] will also make sure all GCTA disqualified convicts will be included. You have to remember, up to now, there are still inmates surrendering),” he said.

According to the Cabinet Secretary, once the final list is completed the PNP can conduct the warrantless arrest against the said “fugitives”.

“The PNP just wants to have pinpoint accuracy kung sino talaga ang hahanapin nila, (The PNP just wants to have pinpoint accuracy on who to track down),” according to Nograles.

Meanwhile, according to National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar their tracker teams continue to monitor the whereabouts of the freed GCTA disqualified convicts.

“Tuloy pa rin ang pagmo-monitor ng tracker teams natin doon sa remaining na nasa listahan natin, (Our tracker teams are still monitoring those [inmates] on our list)” Eleazar said.

The PNP is calling on these inmates to surrender and not wait for authorities to apprehend them.—AAC (with reports from Rosalie Coz)

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) confirmed that the suicide bomber responsible for the Indanan, Sulu blast on September 8, 2019 was a female.

According to PNP Deputy Spokesperson Police Lt. Col. Kimberly Molitas, the DNA test conducted by the PNP Crime Laboratory revealed that the human tissue, flesh and bone specimen recovered from the blast site was similar to a female DNA profile.

But the official clarified that the PNP has no way to determine the identity and the nationality of the suicide bomber because the Crime Laboratory has no equipment yet to do it.

“Remaining specimen and extracted DNA material is currently stored at PNP Crime Laboratory 11, DNA laboratory in Davao,” Molitas said. – MNP (with details from Lea Ylagan)
