At least four cops arrested for firing firearms

At least four cops were arrested for firing their service firearms in line with welcoming the New Year.

“We have to investigate first why they fire their guns if it is in line with duty we will inquire and then after that we will make unnecessary decision if indiscriminate or illegal of discharge of the firearms that’s grave misconduct”, Philippine National Police Officer-in-Charge Deputy Director General Leonardo Espina said before the New Year.

If proven that these policemen were involved in illegal of discharge of firearms, they will face criminal and administrative charges and may be dismissed from service.

Along with four cops, three security guards and three civilians were also arrested for the same reason.
