I first heard of the news on television about a shooting incident in SM Pampanga, I said to myself “isa nanamang walang magawa sa buhay”, but then it struck me after learning the rest of the story. The shooter is a 13 year old boy and he shot his 16 year old friend or lover point blank in his head and then taking his own life. The younger boy shot the other because of jealousy. The two boys are declared brain dead and their families decided to donate their organs.
Now this is a story you will not hear everyday. Sobrang bata pa nang mga involved sa nangyari kaya nakakagulat. Who would ever think na magagawa ng isang binatilyo na mag ala Romeo at Juliet sa mall. Sino bang dapat sisihin sa mga pangyayari? Ang 3rd party na boylet na umagaw sa lover ng bagets? Ang mudrakels ng bagetz na kung saan saan lang iniiwan ang baril. O ang SM kasi sobrang luwag ng security nila kaya naipasok yung baril sa mall. I guess kahit magsisihan pa sila di na mababalik ang buhay ng dalawang minors na to na nainlove lang.
For the rest of the story here are the clips :
According to the news:
PAMPANGA, Philippines (7th UPDATE) — The 13-year-old boy involved in a shooting incident inside SM Pampanga passed away before 3 p.m. on Wednesday, doctors said.
The life support system on the other boy, a 16-year-old, was also removed Wednesday night.
He and his younger companion were earlier declared brain dead by doctors.
Dr. Eric Salas of San Fernandino Hospital, the attending physician, said the family of the 13-year-old boy decided to have his life support tube removed.
The family of the younger boy also decided to donate his vital organs. The boy’s remains have been brought to his family home in Bataan province.
Salas and Dr. Alfonso Danac, head of the emergency room of Jose B. Lingad Hospital in San Fernando City, are now coordinating for the harvesting of the organs.
The family of the 16-year-old victim said his vital organs will also be donated and his body be brought home to Bulacan.
Supt. Wilson Santos of the Mexico, Pampanga police said the shooting incident involving the 2 minors happened in front of the Astrovision store at the mall’s Building 3.
Quoting police, SM said the 13-year-old boy first shot his alleged lover, a 16-year-old boy, in the head. The boy, who used a caliber .22 pistol, then shot himself in the head.
The victims were first rushed to the Jose B. Lingad Hospital.
The younger boy was transferred to San Fernandino Hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU), while the other was sent to V.L. Makabali Hospital for a CT scan, and was brought back to Jose B. Lingad Hospital.
Santos said police authorities found a caliber .22 pistol, 2 empty bullet shells, and 3 live bullets at the scene.
Initial investigations showed that the 13-year-old boy planned the shooting, based on his posts on his Facebook page prior to the incident.
Authorities said the 13-year-old wrote the name of another person, whom they believe he was jealous of, on his T-shirt.
“Parang mayroong third party na involved dito. May pinagseselosan. Katulad nung sa T-shirt [na suot nung biktima], mayroon siyang minumura,” Santos said.
Santos added that a suicide note was recovered from the younger boy, saying he was willing to die with his companion.
A card was recovered from the 16-year-old, which gave details about their relationship.
The boys’ parents had no idea that the 2 were going to meet in Pampanga.
“Ang paalam niya SM Baliwag lang e. Taga-Baliwag kami e. Hindi ko kilala [‘yung kasama niya]. Ang kaibigan ng anak ko, mga kaklase niya sa grade school at high school,” said the mother of the 16-year-old.
The parents of the 13-year-old, meanwhile, thought their son was at school.
SM said a suicide note found in the bag of the 13-year-old “revealed that the incident was a crime of passion and of a personal nature.”
“SM has also exerted all efforts to help the two victims and both their families are now in the hospital,” the company said.
SM deplores incident
SM management immediately deployed additional security personnel to assist authorities in the investigation.
A portion of SM Pampanga where the shooting happened was quickly closed off to the public and media.
Mall workers in that section were also ordered to vacate the area while investigations continue.
“The SM management deplores the unfortunate incident that happened today at SM City Pampanga and is fully cooperating with the authorities in this regard,” the company said in a statement.
“We apologize for whatever inconvenience or anxiety we may have caused our customers and wish to let them know that the situation in the mall is back to normal.”
SM said that while security at its mall was “constantly vigilant,” the gun used was very small and difficult to detect.
