Iligan City — An altercation over some property ended badly after the father shot his son dead on Wednesday at around 7:30 pm at Purok 5B Paitan, Dalipuga, this city.

Junie Tingcang, a kagawad at said barangay, identified the victim as Rico Casis, 33 years old.

The kagawad said the victim was on a drinking spree, together with father Juanito Casis, already a senior citizen, when the two suddenly had an altercation over some property.

At the height of his anger, Rico threw some bottles at his father which further enraged the latter.

Juanito then shot his son with a .38 caliber pistol that he had. The father shot his son on the chest, the kagawad said.

A remorseful father then told the kagawad that he “had a mental block.”

The father surrendered to the police at Dalipuga and as of press time, charges are being readied against him.
