“Parang selos po, ‘yung victim natin parang diniskartehan rin po ‘yung menor de edad na babae,” said Police Major Don Don Llapitan, Chief, Criminal Investigation And Detection Unit.

(It’s like jealousy. The victim is courting a minor girl.)

But the suspect insisted the victim was bullying him, but he did not explain how.

Since the suspect is still a minor, he was placed in the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). But he will still be charged with murder and is considered a child in conflict with the law (CICL).

The police will also investigate how the suspect got the knife inside the school.

“Bago pumasok sa school, dapat chine-check ng guwardya at authorities ng school para ‘di makapasok ‘yung ganyang deadly weapon,” said Llapitan.

(Before entering the school, the school’s guards and authorities must check so that such a deadly weapon does not enter.)

The Department of Education – National Capital Region ( NCR) is concerned about the crime that happened at the school.

It is said that the agency will help the victim’s family and have an appropriate intervention mechanism for the suspect so that he can still continue his studies.

They will also provide stress debriefing to the students and who witnessed the incident.
