PIA Press Release

Bukidnon police investigates radio commentator shooting incident

Cagayan de Oro City (30 November) -- Police Officer 2 Jonel Antique, investigator on duty at the Valencia City Police Station immediately proceeded to Sanitarium Hospital on Friday evening upon receiving a report from hospital authorities regarding a shooting incident involving a certain Randy Makiputin y Tejares, a radio commentator of Radyo Abante of Maramag, Bukidnon.

The station alert team was also dispatched to conduct pursuit operation.

Allegedly, Randy was fired upon by four (4) unidentified men riding in tandem in two (2) XRM motorcycles hitting him on the back portion of his head on Friday night, November 26, 2010 while he was on his way home at Dayo Subdivision in Valencia City.

Makiputin said he was able to return fire and believed that he hit one of his assailants.

The statement issued by Makiputin was contradictory to the statement issued by a certain Rene Saligumba y Sulandre and Pablito Malang y dela Cruz in a joint affidavit they executed.

The two men volunteered to give a statement regarding the incident when the Chief of Police, Police Supt. Adonis Mutya, and his men conducted an ocular inspection and a follow up investigation in Dayo Subdivision.

According to them, they were about to ride a "motorela" in Dayo Subdivision when an unidentified man riding a motorcycle bumped into Mr. Saligumba's bag causing him to be thrown off from his motorcycle.

The said man whom they observed to be under the influence of an intoxicating liquor immediately drew his pistol and fired upon Mr. Saligumba and his companion but luckily they were not hit.

Their statement was corroborated by the statement issued by two minors who were on board the "motorela" where Mr. Saligumba and Mr. Malang boarded to evade the said man and by the unofficial medical findings of the resident doctor who initially attended to Randy Makiputin upon his arrival at the hospital.

According to the said medical findings the wound in Randy's head is not a gunshot wound but a wound caused by the impact of a hard object on his head.

Mr. Saligumba on the other hand did not express interest in filing a case against Mr. Makiputin.

Police authorities are still conducting further investigation on the case. (PNP-10) [top]
