MANILA – A 37-year-old man was killed after he accidentally shot himself in the penis during a drinking session with his friends in Rosales, Pangasinan.
Police said Geronimo Narciso was reportedly drunk and fired two shots into the air, prompting his companions to restrain him.
When Narciso tried to hide his homemade caliber .22 firearm in his pants, he accidentally pulled the trigger.
"Isusukbit na niya nang makalabit. Naputukan ‘yung private part niya (He was about to put the gun back in his pants when he accidentally pulled the trigger. He shot his private part),” said SPO2 Remelio Mendoza, Rosales Police investigator.
Authorities said there are no signs of foul play, but Narciso’s family wants a deeper investigation into the incident.
The family claims the victim did not own a gun. -- Report from Melanie Heng, ABS-CBN News Central Luzon
