A simple get-together with friends with drinking session ended up in bloody confrontation after a 44-year-old man was hacked to death by his drinking pal at Purok 1, Barangay Calabasa Friday night.

Police identified the fatality as Expedito Manalo Bella, 44, married. He sustained multiple hack wounds in the body and died on the spot.

Bella was hacked several times by Roger Fernando Alvarez, 35, single.

Police said Bella, Alvarez and Jayson Guevarra Garcia, a barangay tanod, had been drinking since 7 p.m.

After consuming several glasses of liquor, Bella and Alvarez engaged in an exchange of jokes but the latter became upset for some reasons.

Police said Alvarez left the place, went home and armed himself with a scythe. A few minutes later he returned to the store where they were drinking and suddenly attacked Bella.

The victim died on the spot while the suspect escaped after the incident.

Police have readied charges against Alvarez. —  Dan Toribio
