MANILA - A barangay volunteer was shot dead by a fellow volunteer after he allegedly complained of the latter's loud videoke session in Barangay 255, San Nicolas, Tondo.

The victim, identified as Gener Hermosa, was sleeping when he was shot three times by Eduardo Damayo.

Before the shooting incident, residents said they heard Hermosa complain of the loud videoke session of Damayo.

Resident Roberto Darjuan said the suspect was drunk at the time of the incident.

Darjuan also said the victim and the suspect already had a misunderstanding before the shooting.

"Kasi yung isa ang laging inuutusan ni chairman. Yung isa naman nagselos, parang na-balewala kasi," he said.

Meanwhile, the victim's wife said she could not understand why Damayo would kill her husband over such petty differences.

"Ang dami pa naman naming plano, paano na ang mga pangarap namin," Emily said.

"Sana mangyari sa kanya kung anong ginawa niya sa asawa ko," she added.

Damayo, who was immediately arrested by the police, will be charged with murder.

Barangay captain Arnel Dungo, meanwhile, said they will pursue the case against Damayo even if the suspect is his cousin. -- Report from Niko Baua, ABS-CBN News
