13-year-old boy shoots alleged 16-year-old boyfriend, then himself in SM Pampanga

The 13-year-old boy who shot his alleged 16-year-old boyfriend in the head before shooting himself using a caliber .22 pistol inside SM Pampanga yesterday, September 21, was declared brain dead, according to a radio report today.

The family of the 13-year-old boy, whose identity has been withheld because he is a minor, is now contemplating which organs they can donate before authorizing his doctors to unplug the life support system that has kept him alive.

According to a news report by Bandila last night, this is the second incident that someone carrying a gun/pistol was able to enter inside an SM mall.

The management of SM Pampanga, on the other hand, said they did their job of ensuring safety inside the mall but its metal detector failed to uncover the pistol used by the boy in the shooting.
