Willie Nepomuceno Grandson Shot In MarikinaThe grandson of comedian Willie Nepomuceno along with his friends was shot by still-unidentified assailants early Thursday morning in Marikina City while the group was just about to eat at a local restaurant.
Nepomuceno said that his grandson sustained three gunshot wounds while his friends were also hurt in the incident.
According to the comedian, his grandson’s friends told him that their group was just going home from playing computer games all night when they decided to eat breakfast at a local eatery. After one round of orders, the group which consisted of his grandson and three other kids reportedly had some other food cooked and that was when the incident happened.
Nepomuceno said that while he food was being cooked, a white sedan pulled up in front of the eatery. One person reportedly came out and fired a warning shot towards the sky. After the warning shot, everyone in the sedan came out.
The comedian said that the vehicle’s license plate was noted by witnesses.
“Apat din sila. Lumapit sa kanila at parang sinita sita sila na ‘Kayo yun no? Kayo yun?’ Tulala ang mga bata, mga high school lang ito eh. Hindi nila alam kung ano yun,” Nepomuceno told DZMM.
“Nagkabiglaan. May sumigaw ng ‘Takbo, takbo!’ Yung isang taxi driver naamoy na may masamang intension ang grupo so nagtakbuhan sila. Pagtakbo, pinaulanan sila ng putok ng baril. Lahat armed,” the comedian explained.
