14-year-old boy shot in Tondo
The family of a 14-year-old boy is mourning after unknown assailants shot him in Barangay 56, Zone 5, Tondo, Manila, on Wednesday.
On CCTV, the victim, Deejay Cabilin, can be seen sitting with a group in the covered court next to the barangay hall at 11 pm when two men on a motorcycle arrived.
The rider got off and approached Cabilin and shot him.
The young man was still standing and ran to the back of the parked SUV.
He was rushed to the hospital but was also killed by a bullet wound to the head.
Cabilin’s 16-year-old niece was also injured in the shooting.
During the investigation by the Manila Police District homicide section, the young man was in the barangay hall at that time after he allegedly stabbed another minor at a computer shop in another barangay.
The shooting happened as they waited for the complaining family to arrive.
It is still unknown whether the murder of Cabilin was related to the alleged complaint.
