An inmate of the Sindangan District Jail in Zamboanga del Norte was shot to death after he tried to grab a jailguard’s firearm while escaping from detention last Saturday afternoon.

Killed was Anthony Itao Lamanan, 33, single, and facing a murder charge. He was shot by Jail Officer 1 Avelino Pacure Cariño Jr.

Lamanan sustained a bullet wound in the body.

A police report disclosed that Lamanan went to the drying area to get his clothes around 2:39 p.m. but suddenly rused towards Cariño trying to grab his issued sidearm.

Cariño fought back until he was able to draw his gun and fired a warning shot but Lamanan continued his attack prompting the jail guard to shoot him.

Lamanan was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead on arrival. — Dan Toribio Jr.
