CEBU CITY - A 73-year-old patient shot his doctor dead before he killed himself inside a clinic in Sacred Heart Hospital in Cebu Thursday morning.

The suspect, Wilfredo Sabonsolin, was having a consultation with Chris Cecil Abbu, an orthopedic doctor, when the incident occurred.

Abbu sustained a fatal gunshot wound in his chest, with the bullet piercing his heart.

Eric Decatoria, a janitor, said he fled out of fear after he saw Abbu shoot the doctor.

When he returned, he saw Sabonsolin pointing and pulling the trigger of a gun on his own head.

Sabonsolin was rushed to the emergency room but he was eventually declared dead.

Based on investigation, Sabonsolin was suffering from depression because of his spinal cord illness. He had undergone two surgeries with Abbu to address his spinal cord problem.

Authorities are still investigating how the suspect was able to bring a gun inside the hospital. -- report from Joworski Alipon, ABS-CBN News Central Visayas
