A police officer assigned in the city of Parañaque will be facing two counts of murder for fatally shooting his unarmed neighbors in Paniqui, Tarlac, authorities said on Monday.
The police report narrated how Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca took off after killing 52-year-old Sonya Gregorio and her son Frank Anthony Gregorio, 25, in Purok 2, Barangay Cabayaoasan, Paniqui, Tarlac on Sunday afternoon.
About an hour after the murder, he surrendered at the Rosales Pangasinan Municipal Police Station, turning over his PNP-issued 9mm semi-auto pistol that was used in the shooting.
Two charges of murder will be filed against Nuezca, as the Department of Interior and Local Government assured a thorough, impartial, and swift investigation. No bail was recommended.
A close up of the shooting incident was caught on camera and the video is now viral on several social media sites. The policeman is accompanied by his young daughter in a fight with an unarmed victims Frank Anthony, whose mother was holding him back. Nuezca’s daughter was shouting the words “my father is a policeman,” to which Sonya replied that she does not care. Nuezca threatened to kill Sonya before shooting her point-blank in the head, then proceeded to shoot Frank Anthony twice, before firing at Sonya once again who was already on the ground.
