A man is now in jail after he hacked to death a barangay kagawad who shot and killed his 19-year-old son on Sunday evening in Capiz.

Angelo Dunton Sr., surrendered on Monday morning to authorities. He said he attacked Barangay Kagawad Ruperto Domo-os Jr. of barangay Carataya, Maayon out of self-defense. 

He claimed that Domo-os also aimed his gun at him.

According to police, Dunton Jr. had a drinking session in the piggery owned by Domo-os. They had an argument that led into a brawl. Dunton Jr. allegedly uttered threatening words before leaving. 

Domo-os trailed Dunton Jr. home and shot him. He sustained a fatal gunshot wound in the armpit. 

The incident was witnessed by Dunton Sr. because it happened just a few meters away from their home. He took his bolo and hacked dead the kagawad. 

Dunton Sr. has been charged with homicide and is now detained at the Maayon police station.
