A 21-year-old student died after being shot by a doctor inside a bar along De Tavera corner V. Mapa and J Camus Extension Davao City around 12:50 a.m. of July 2.

The San Pedro Police Station identified the victim as Amir Pulanon Mangacop, 21, a resident of Phase 5 El Rio Subdivision, Bacaca, Barangay 19-B, Davao City.

In the initial police investigation, the victim was reportedly shot dead by Marvin Rey Andrew Roflo Pepino, 31, a resident of Phase 1, Block 4, Sapphire street, Hillside, Bajada, Davao City, inside Lugar Bar.

PMaj. Benkalin Baluan, the Chief of Police of San Pedro Police Station, said a bar fight ensued inside the bar between some bargoers, including the victim.

As the fight ensued, Pepino, a Non-Uniformed Police or NUP, pulled his 9mm Glock 43 pistol and shot the victim repeatedly.

The victim was rushed to the nearby Davao Doctors Hospital, but he was declared dead on arrival by the attending physicians.

The police arrested the suspect after the killing and recovered six empty shells of a 9mm Glock 43 pistol at the crime scene.

A homicide case is now being readied against the detained suspect for his crime.
