Unang Balita’s Athena Imperial said the victim went out for a haircut. He was later found dead at 5 p.m. near their home on Martan Street in Barangay Commonwealth.
Amelita Jore, the mother of the victim, said, “Sabi niya, ma, mag-practice lang po ako, sandali lang. (Sabi ko) O sige, umuwi ka agad, maya-maya hindi pa siya umuwi, galing siya sa ano, nagpagupit, ngayon, nung pagkalabas daw ng barber shop, yun na.”
A woman identified as Wenilfreda Mendoza caught a bullet in her leg when the shooting happened. She was taken to the East Avenue Medical Center.
Witnesses have declined to be interviewed according to GMA Network.
Glen Jore, a brother of the victim said he wasn’t involved in anything drug-related.
“Hindi po siya kasama sa drug-related, kaya hindi masasabing mistaken identity. Hindi pa rin po namin masabi yung motibo kung sinong gumawa kasi wala naman po kaming alam na kaaway niya,” Glen said.
“Hindi naman hayop na dapat patayin lang yan na iwanan diyan eh, grabe naman sila, bata pa yung kapatid ko, may pangarap sa buhay yun eh,” said Sandro Jore, the victim’s other brother.
