Another broad daylight crime incident in Cagayan de Oro that was caught on video marred what could have been a peaceful Sunday afternoon in the city. Initial investigation by police indicate a gangwar between rival teenage gangs resulted to the fatal stabbing of a 13-year old victim right in front of a mall and just across Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) today, October 23. Radio reports also state the main suspect is a 15-year old member of a rival gang.
In the video that has gone viral in social media, a group of suspects are shown ganging up on the hapless victim beside a parked motorela before one suspect repeatedly stabbed the victim. The group then escaped towards the direction of CM Recto-Corrales Junction. One suspect is seen still holding a bladed weapon. Screengrabs below.
The second video showed the victim now lying on the pavement with a blooded shirt about 25 meters away from where the stabbing took place. Screengrabs below.
A third video showed a bystander trying to help the hapless victim who was already fighting for his life. Screengrabs below.
Police later took into custody for further investigation several members of the Kaibigan Lang Po (KLP) group wherein the minor victim was a member. Accordingly, the suspects belonged to the rival Soy Shit Dem (SSD) group who are all at-large at the moment and being hunted by police.
