MANILA, Philippines – The local government of Kawit, Cavite is ready to help the victims of the shooting spree in Barangay Tabon last Friday, according to Kawit Mayor Reynaldo Aguinaldo.

Eight people died while 10 others were injured when gunman Ronald “Bossing” Bae ran amok last Friday. He was shot dead by police after refusing to surrender.

In an interview with DZMM, Aguinaldo said they are ready to help the victims and their families.

“’Yung mga namatayan, bibigyan namin ng tulong sa paglibing. At pati ‘yung sa ospital, sa kanilang gamot. Meron na po kaming nabigya na tulog sa kanila,” he said.

“Sa aking mga kababayan, nakakalungkot ang mga nangyari sa ating bayan. Hindi ko gusto, wala sa atin ang may gusto ng ganitong kaguluhan,” Aguinaldo added.

“So ngayon, wala na ang suspek, siguro naman matatahimik na ‘yung Barangay Tabon.”

Bae’s alleged accomplice, John Paul Lopez, is facing murder raps after allegedly helping the suspect reload his gun during the shooting spree. -- Report from Nikki delos Santos, DZMM.
