Tarlac killings “an isolated case”

The killing in daylight of a mother and son in Paniqui, Tarlac at the hands of an off-duty police officer is, according to the government, another isolated incident as it promised a full investigation into the killing.

The video of the incident, which has since gone viral on social media, shows policeman Jonel Nuezca shooting 52-year-old Sonya Gregorio and her son Frank Anthony Gregorio—both unarmed—at point-blank range during an argument.

The killer, who was reportedly assigned to the Parañaque City crime laboratory, has since turned himself in to police in Pangasinan province and is facing a complaint for double murder.

Brigadier General Ildebrandi Usana, Philippine National Police spokesperson, said, “What the cop did really wasn’t right, especially since he had in his possession a gun supposedly to use against criminals — but one that he used on innocent people. This is an isolated case, we will see to it that justice will be served.”
