April 6, 2009 Major News Stories

Cop shoots cop dead in Camotes

It was reported that Mortejo, 55, a widower, and residing at barangay Capitol Site, Cebu City, was awoken from his sleep.

This was because Barrameda, 32, married of Minglanilla town, entered the radio room. It was at this point that Mortejo confronted Barrameda about missing items from their station, which he believes the younger policeman took.

Mortejo, who is supply Police Non-Commissioned Officer of the station, accused Barrameda of taking four short pants, two .38 caliber revolvers, one super .38 pistol, and one Beretta pistol.

Barrameda denied the accusation and an argument ensued.

In the course of the argument, Mortejo grabbed his M-16 Armalite rifle and fired twice at Barrameda hitting him on the upper right side of the chest.

Fellow policemen, who were on duty, immediately rushed to the radio room and found Barrameda already wounded on the floor.

They disarmed Mortejo, who did not resist, and rushed the wounded policeman to the Ricardo Maningo Memorial Hospital, but Barrameda was declared dead on arrival.

As an off-shoot of the incident, Sr. Insp. Ciriaco Larrobis was immediately relieved as chief of the San Francisco police station and has been assigned to the Provincial Security Service Group (PSSG).

Supt. Edward Saavedra, who is currently the island supervisor for Camotes, will assume as office in charge.

The relief of Larrobis was however already pending as he was subject of an investigation for abandonment of post last year. In that case, Barrameda was also involved.

The center is a stepping stone for recent arrivals, many of them with poor or nonexistent English-speaking skills.

Yigal was learning English there as she dreamed of getting a job working with children, her American husband Omri Yigal said.
