Cebu road rage suspect David Lim Jr., on Thursday has posted bail and was ordered released by a local court.

The Cebu City Prosecutor’s Office recommended P24,000 bail for the frustrated homicide charge and another P120,000 for illegal possession of ammunition charge against Lim. 

Regional Trial Court Judge Ricky Jones Macabaya ordered Lim's release.

Lim was tagged as the primary suspect in the road rage shooting of nurse Ephraim Nuñal in a traffic altercation in Cebu City. The incident was caught on camera.

Bodyguards were sighted outside Lim's cell Wednesday afternoon despite a denial from PNP chief Ronald dela Rosa that Lim was receiving VIP treatment in detention.
