A 23-year-old son of a barangay captain in Tinambac, Camarines Sur was arrested by the local police for shooting and seriously wounding a ‘kagawad’ late last week, Police Regional Office 5 director, Brigadier General Arnel B. Escobal said yesterday.

Aldrin Tuy, a driver residing in Zone 1, Bgy. San Vicente, accompanied by his mother Gemma, the chairwoman of Bgy. San Vicente surrendered to the Tinambac Municipal Police Station shortly after the 12 noon shooting in Zone 7 of the same village on Wednesday last week, the Bicol police director said.

According to Escobal, the suspect shot ‘kagawad’ Edgar Nepas, a resident of Zone 3, at 12 noon last Wednesday before fleeing on foot. Four hours later,  her mother turned him over to the local police minus the weapon he used in the gun attack.
