Press Statement of
PNP Spokesman
March 12, 2012

The Philippine National Police join the family, colleagues and friends of Daily Tribune reporter Fernan Angeles in expressing the strongest condemnation over the violent attack on Fernan last night in Pasig City.

The Chief PNP, Director General Nicanor A Bartolome has put to task the National Capital Region Police Office and the Eastern Police District to dig deep into the shooting incident with the end in view to immediately identify and arrest those responsible.

AS we speak, EPD investigators are working double time to limit the movement of the gunman and perhaps effect an arrest soonest.

Likewise, the PNP Task Force Usig has been tasked to extend every possible assistance to the family of Fernan, including security to his immediate family.

What we can share at the moment is the information that the violent attack was the result of a melee or brawl that erupted in Fernan Angeles’ neighborhood on Sunday evening, this information will form part of the ongoing police investigation to establish the facts and circumstances surrounding the incident.
