An employee of the Zamboanga City Water District killed himself by gulping a bottle of insecticide and shooting himself at Sitio Imelda, Barangay  Tolosa at noon Friday.

The suicide was identified as Vincent Reyes y Narcs, 42, married.

Police said that Reyes and members of his family had just arrived home from Sitio Santa Clara, Tolosa, when he suddenly drank a bottle of insecticide. His wife tried to stop him from doing so. Then Reyes calmed down. Few minutes later, his wife heard a gunshot and when she checked, she saw her husband lying on the floor with multiple pellet wounds in the body.

Reyes died on the spot, police said.

It was learned that Reyes used an improvised shotgun called “palipit” in shooting himself.

The body was brought to the funeral parlor for post mortem examination. — Dan Toribio Jr.
