A heated debate involving fighting cocks led a man to shoot his own brother during the suspect’s birthday celebration in Barangay Baluno, this city last Monday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report identified the victim as Roberto Isic y Francisco, 47 years old, married.

Roberto was reportedly shot by his brother Felix, 39 years old.

Prior to the incident, the two men together with another brother identified as Bernardino celebrated Felix’s birthday and victory in a cock fight by engaging in a drinking session.

Hours into the celebration, Roberto and Felix engaged in a heated discussion regarding fighting cocks.

Roberto then took out his bolo and hacked three fighting cocks owned by Felix.

The act enraged Felix who then got his firearm and shot Roberto, hitting the latter on his right leg.

The victim was rushed to the Zamboanga City Medical Center (ZCMC) for treatment.

Police meanwhile are conducting hot pursuit operations to arrest the suspect.  (Dan Toribio)
