A TEENAGER detainee of Ivisan Police Station lock-up cell in Capiz province instantly died after he allegedly shot himself Wednesday afternoon.
Worse, Toto (not his real name), a resident of Brgy.Basiao, Ivisan town, used the firearm of PO2 John Cordovera, a member of the Ivisan PNP patrol team, in committing suicide.
How Toto stole and sneaked Cordovera’s gun inside his prison cell remains a mystery.
Cordovera claimed he discovered that his gun was missing when he was about to go home around 8am Wednesday.
“So, I told him to look for it. He could not allegedly remember where he put it,” said Inspector Bryant Fallera, Ivisan police chief.
He even warned Cordovera of his accountability for the government issued caliber .9mm pistol.
