Man shoots brother, mother in drunken fight

Posted on October 15, 2012


An argument drove a 34-year old man to shoot his brother and wound their mother who tried to mediate between them last Sunday.

Joselito Bardilas was drinking with his 28-year old brother Jeffy in their house at 1st St. Carmen Village in Poblacion, Talisay City last Sunday when an argument ensued between them.

Joselito pulled out his firearm and shot Jeffy on his right arm and ankle. His mother who tried to stop her two sons was also hit on her right leg. While the rest of the family brought the victims to the Miller hospital, the suspect fled.

He was later arrested and told police he threw his gun after the incident. He said an old grudge prompted him to try and kill his brother./ Correspondent Gabriel C. Bonjoc
