A security guard escaped death after his colleague accidentally fired his gun while the weapon was being turned over to him.

The accidental firing happened inside the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) compound last Friday.

Police took Leodie Catapas into custody after accidentally firing his gun during turnover of the weapon to Edmund Sitol y Sambangan.

According to investigation Capas was turning over the  9mm pistol to Sitol when the gun accidentally went off, hiting the wall of the edifice.

Sitol escaped unhurt.

The weapon was turned over to the police who also took custody of Catapas.  (Dan Toribio)
