A 40-year old man was arrested for firing his gun indiscriminately inside a videoke bar along Governor Camins Avenue last Thursday.

The suspect was identified as Roderick Atilano y Bello, married and a resident of Pasonanca.

The incident was reported by Marian Luna y Dinglasa who sought the assistance of a police patrol vehicle.

Investigation showed that Atilano together with two companions were having a drinking session in the bar when the former drew out his revolver and fired his gun towards some beer bottles.

The incident led people to panic, including Marian Luna y Dinglasa who was then carrying her eight-month old daughter.

Dinglasan asked help from police who soon after arrested Atilano.

Atilano was detained pending the filing of charges for Illegal Possession of Firearms and Alarm and Scandal.  (Dan Toribio)
