The man who started a shootout in Cavite City which resulted in the demise of a member of the Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) has been discovered to be involved in a road rage incident four years ago.
The suspect, identified as Methusael Cebrian has gone viral on social media in 2016 for allegedly intimidating a couple using his weapon.
In the video, it showed Cebrian holding his weapon despite the election gun ban while having an argument with the uploader “Catherine”.
After being surrounded, Cebrian denied that he’s pointing his gun at Catherine.
The video has been recirculated on social media and Cebrian received unusual support from some netizens.
“Di ko alam buong kwento neto, pero bilib ako kay kuyang may baril. Disiplinado pa din sa hawak nyang baril. Kahit na kinukuyog na sya atleast wala syang binaril. Sana pag may naka encounter kayo ganto na me baril, tawag agad pulis para sila na ang bahala. Hindi yung tinitrigger nyo pa. Pasalamat nalang sila kasi walang nasaktan,” netizen Marghon Ringad said.
“Pasalamat kayo hndi kayo tinuluyan bunganga ng babae sakit sa tenga ang tapang nyo alam nyo nang my baril nakikipag talo pa kayo,” Sparow Buacala commented.
“Mabuti matino yung may hawak ng baril. kung may topak yan, yari kayo. yung nag vivideo at yung iba nag hahamon ng suntukan pwede grave threat at baka pwedeng self defence ang labas nun,” Alvaro Uy remarked.
It’s not yet known if the netizens who watched the video were aware of the real identity of Cebrian, who also didn’t survive the shootout that happened last Friday.
