A CCTV video went viral on Saturday evening showing a man shooting a couple on their heads after emerging an establishment.
The video was posted by a friend of a couple identified as Mr. Dave and Angel Abello. The gunman was known as Allan Contreras Averilla, 38, who remained at large.
Facebook user Kotaro Minami claimed that the victims and Averilla were residents of Minuyan, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan. The two parties faced each other in the town’s barangay hall attending a case hearing filed by the victims.
According to Minami, Dave Abello filed a complaint to the barangay against Averilla for death threats and physical injury after Allan learned that Dave cited him as the one who stole a Mio motorcycle in Towerville. According to the report, in revenge, Averilla manhandled Dave Abello in their home in Tialo. The suspect also reportedly slapped Angel and dragged her outside their home. Dave Abello also said that the suspect shot at his foot twice.
Fearing for their lives, the couple moved out of their home. However, their fear was realized when they met at the barangay hall. Dave demanded that Allan will pay them 30,000 pesos as compensation for the physical injuries. However, the suspect reportedly refused to pay up and offered 5,000 pesos.
