A security guard who was accused of physically abusing his daughter committed suicide by shooting himself, minutes before the scheduled confrontation in a barangay hall the other day in Zamboanga City.
The fatality was identified as Gamalien Genabia, Vellocillo, 44, security guard of Philippine Port Authority ( PPA) and a resident of Sotto Drive, Barangay Divisoria, Zamboanga City.
Reports reaching Camp Crame said the incident occurred at around 9:30 a.m. beside the Barangay Divisoria Hall.
Accordingly, the guard went to the area to attend a scheduled hearing of physical abuse filed by his daughter Mylyn, 19, single, against him.
Before the hearing, the victim asked permission to go out and pee.
He then went outside and took a gun from his motorcycle and shot himself.
The victim sustained gunshot wound in the head that caused his instant death.
He was taken to Zamboanga Peninsula Hospital but died while undergoing treatment.
It was learned that the daughter filed charges of physical abuse against her father last October 14, 2019.
