“Nag-apply tayo ng search warrant base lang sa mga complaint laban sa kanya na nakikita siya na nagpapaputok ng baril sa bakuran niya kapag lasing. Nagmamaoy at nagpapaputok,” Rayoso said.

The suspect is now under the custody of City Police Station 2 while charges for violation of Republic Act 10591 or Illegal Possession of Firearms and Ammunition are being prepared by authorities.
