TARLAC CITY—- A Tarlac resident was killed by a policeman after he ran amok at Barangay (village) San Roque at 1:05 p.m. on Wednesday (Oct. 10).

Police said Geffrey Tumamaw Orpilla, 40, grabbed a bolo (machete) used by a coconut vendor and started chasing bystanders in front of a mall. Orpilla then grabbed a 3-year-old boy from his father.

A police officer, PO2 Jaypee Cunanan, arrived at the scene and started negotiating for the child’s release. However, police said Orpilla attacked Cunanan, who then opened fire.
