A security guard who shot and killed a 15-year-old student inside a classroom in Calamba, Laguna has been arrested, a radio DZMM report said Tuesday.
Suspect Renz Ivan Valderama, also known as Renando Valderama, was arrested in Barangay Pansol in Calamba, Laguna before 4 a.m. after he was spotted by residents.
Eyewitnesses earlier said Valderama entered the classroom at around 12:30 p.m. last July 4 and shot the 15-year-old victim before escaping.
A caretaker said Valderama was able to enter the school by mingling with construction workers who had entered the premises.
Relatives of the victim earlier said the two had a relationship until last month after the student accused Valderama of raping him from March to June of this year.
Lt. Col. Jacinto Malinao Jr., Calamba City police chief, said the suspect was also jailed in 2017 for theft.
