Trader allegedly shot dead by Subic Freeport cop

A 43-year old businessman was allegedly shot dead by a Freeport policeman following a heated altercation at a checkpoint along Argonout Highway, Kalayaan Hills, Subic Bay Freeport early morning Friday, police reports said.

Police identified the fatality as Rayman Reyes, 41, a livestock dealer and resident of Barangay San Jose in Dinalupihan, Bataan. The victim succumbed to a lone gunshot wound in the head.

Sketchy reports said the victim was on board a Toyota Avanza (ZMA-320) cruising the Argonout Highway when flagged down at Post 301 by Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) security identified as Judy Bugtong Holanda, 43, member of the Law Enforcement Department (LED) of the Freeport.

Police said the victim was reportedly fuming mad when his car was subjected for inspection by the SBMA cop. It was gathered that all vehicles plying the Kalayaan Hills are subjected for inspection at Post 301.

A heated confrontation triggered the shooting killing Reyes instantly, police said. The victim suffered a gunshot wound in the upper lips.

Holanda immediately called up his colleague in the LED where he voluntarily surrendered including his 9 mm service pistol.

Crime scene investigators found a loaded caliber .45 pistol at the passenger seat of the victim car.

Trader allegedly shot and killed by SBMA law enforcer

By Ansbert Joaquin - Inquirer Central Luzon Desk

OLONGAPO CITY, Philippines -- A trader was shot and killed Friday morning, allegedly by one of several Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) guards who accosted him at a police sentry at Kalayaan housing inside the Subic Bay Freeport.

Senior Inspector Orlando Reyes of the Olongapo City police station 4 identified the fatality as Reynan Reyes, 41.

Reyes’ girlfriend, Edith Paunal, said he fetched a friend who had earlier been refused entry by guards at the Kalayaan exit gate at about 6:20 a.m. Friday.

Guards said they did not allow Reyes' friend to enter due to lack of SBMA identification.

Reyes, however, argued with the police, saying his friend was already inside the vehicle and that the vehicle had a valid SBMA sticker.

The businessman later went back and fetched Paunal. Both of them went to the police station in Kalayaan to file a complaint.

Police said the two went back to the Kalayaan sentry and argued with the guards on duty there. Reyes hit a guard with a wooden stick then left.

When the guards at the gate alerted other guards on duty, Reyes and his companions were denied entry at the Kalayaan Housing where Paunal is a resident.

Vicente Tolentino, chief of SBMA's Law Enforcement Division (LED), approached Reyes' Toyota Avanza minivan and asked him to roll down his window.

Tolentino said he was trying to reach for the door lock when Reyes bit his hand.

This prompted Juldy Holanda, an LED agent, to shoot Reyes in the head, killing him instantly.

By: Ruben Veloria - Journal online
SUBIC BAY FREEPORT -- A man wanted for hitting Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority policeman with ax handle on the head was shot and killed by another law enforcer at the sentry of a housing facility here when he tried to grab a gun on his car’s floor.

Major Vicente Tolentino, chief of Operations of SBMA Law Enforcement Department, identified the victim as Reyman Reyes, 41, of Bgy. San Jose, Dinalupihan, Bataan. He sustained a lone gunshot wound from a .9mm pistol.

Tolentino said that based on the initial investigation reveals that last Thursday, Reyes, who was driving his Toyota Avanza, entered the Freeport Zone at Kalayaan Gate in Lower Cabalan, Olongapo City, where he was advised by SBMA officer Michael Magpantay to secure an SBMA car pass sticker.

A heated argument ensued after Reyes allegedly grumbled at Magpantay’s advice and cursed him.

At around 6:20 p.m. the next day, Reyes, together with a 17-year-old boy-companion, entered Kalayaan Gate, again Magpantay asked Reyes for his SBMA car pass sticker.

Without a word, Reyes got off the car and hit the officer in the head using a wooden handle and hurriedly left the area.

An hour later, Reyes was stopped at the Kalayaan Hill checkpoint but he refused to surrender.

Tolentino, who came to the scene, ordered the uniformed officers to step back, then asked Reyes to open his window for a conversation.

Reyes transferred at the passenger’s seat and opened about a quarter of the window and started cursing Tolentino and the officers.
