A grenade attack by an irate man resulted to the death of his own mother in Mercedes, Dimatiling, Zamboanga del Sur last Monday.

A Police  report identified the fatality as Jocelyn Delave Bakiki, 47 years old.

Based on the report, members of the Bakiki family were having their dinner at around 7:50pm when Jocelyn’s son, Jome, arrived home intoxicated.

Jome’s father scolded the son causing the latter to storm off to his father’s room.

After a few minutes, Jome appeared and armed with a hand grenade, pulled the safety lever and threw it towards the dining table.

Two other victims were injured:  Mami Abcede Bakiki, 57, a Barangay Kagawad and Abnerabbe Meddilo Bakiki, 14.

Jocelyn was rushed to the hospital where she was declared dead on arrival.

The suspect meanwhile was arrested and detained at the police station.  (Dan Toribio)
