Parañaque policeman Joel Nuezca heared complains of hearing an improvised cannon (boga). He then detaining the son, as he waits the rest of the police to arrest the son. In the video, people are seen offering the crying mother some water to calm her down. She insisted on hugging her son while other shouts and begs to stop and say “tam ana!” (that’s enough). About 40 seconds before the video ended, the daughter of the policeman confronted and argued with the mother while holding her phone between her chest. From that, the events escaladed to more shouting and finally shooting.
Here is what happened (according to the video):
POLICEMAN’S DAUGHTER: “Just let go na!
SON (VICTIM): “…tas ganyan ka!” (…and you’re like that)
POLICEMAN’S DAUGHTER: “SHUSH SHUSH SHUT UP!”
MOTHER (VICTIM): “Siya ang e let go mo. Hindi kami! Nandito kami sa bahay namin. Okay?” (You should let him [the son] go )
POLICEMAN’S DAUGHTER: “MY FATHER IS A POLICEMAN!”
MOTHER (VICTIME): “I don’t care e e e e re” saying in a melodic end referring to the song I Don’t Care by 2NE1 Sandara Park.
POLICEMAN: “Putang ina mo. Gusto mo tapusin kita ngayon, huh?”
Without finishing his sentence, the policeman shot the mother first at the back of her head, then shot the son’s head from the front. They both went down on the ground with a loud thump. The policeman shot the son a second time then shot the mother again on the head.
