A 13-year-old boy was shot and killed outside his Pasay City home Sunday afternoon, according to a report on GMA 7 news program "24 Oras Weekend".
Victim Jayross Brondial was sitting outside his home at around 2 p.m. when a motorcycle-riding gunman drove up and opened fire.
"Paglabas ko ng pinto, bigla na lang may nagpaputok, tumakbo ako," recounted Jayross' mother, Rosanna. "Pero hindi ko po alam na anak ko ang babarilin. Kasi nakita ko, sa kapitbahay namin nakatutok ang baril."
"Paglabas ko ulit... nakabulagta na ang anak ko diyan," she added. "Sumigaw pa nga yung ang anak ko na wala siyang kasalanan, ba't daw siya ina-ano."
Jayross was rushed to hospital, but he unfortunately expired before he could receive treatment.
While police investigators recovered six .45 caliber slugs and three casings from the crime scene, they have yet to discover the motive for the shooting. — DVM/KVD, GMA News
