KILLED OVER CAR STICKER 1/8/2012

 

 

Woman shot near guard house

 

 

 

Is a car pass for entry in one’s own neighborhood worth losing a life?

A 39-year-old woman was killed after an argument with subdivision security guards in Lapu-Lapu City who refused to open the gate to let her car enter because it didn't have a homeowner’s sticker.

Rose Ann La Paz, a resident of Grand Pacific Villa Subdivision, was fatally shot in the chest with the guard's shotgun, allegedly fired by an employee who was present in the confrontation on Friday evening.

Police are looking for Randy Emborong, a staff collector of the Grand Pacific Villa Subdivision management.

The upscale neighborhood hosts Mediterranean-style houses in sitio Suba-Masulog in barangay Basak, Lapu-Lapu City.

La Paz was rushed to the Mactan Doctors’ Hospital with a gunshot wound in the chest. She didn’t survive.

Last Friday, she arrived at the gate on board a Mitsubishi Montero, according to the police.

She instructed her son, Buenjer, to open the gate since the guard didn't do so despite her blowing the vehicle's horn.

A confrontation ensued.

Police said security guard Rodulfo Cavalida of the St. Louis Security Agency was on duty with fellow guard Elmer Villarba and Emborong.

Initial reports said the guard was instructed by Emborong not to open the gate because La Paz's vehicle didn't have a sticker or entry pass, as required by the homeowners association.

A quarrel erupted after the woman confronted Emborong and the two guards.

According to one of the guards, Villarba, Emborong suddenly grabbed his service shotgun and fired at the woman.

Emborong and the other guard Cavalida fled on foot right after that.

Police were notified about 2 p.m. yesterday that the woman had expired in the hospital.

The gun used in the violence was recovered and will be subjected to a ballistics tests.

During police interrogation, Villarba revealed that Emborong and the slain woman had previous confrontations about the vehicle sticker rule, which La Paz didn’t follow. /By Norman V. Mendoza, Correspondent

despite that is was foolish of her and she obviously handled this wrong, it still does not justify her been shot to death. What is most concerning about your post is not so much what you say but the f

Steve, take some advice from someone who knows.   Regarding the first bold sentence above, it's not just armed guards, you have no idea who is armed here and who is not. Best to just bite your tongu

This case is also an example of how NOT to behave to people in the Philippines especially those that have access to firearms. Most of us would have just put the sticker in the car and said good mornin

This case is also an example of how NOT to behave to people in the Philippines especially those that have access to firearms. Most of us would have just put the sticker in the car and said good morning and politely waved to the guard every day.

Wow. First off my best to Rose's family. As to the story I do not know why Rose just did not park the car outside the gate and had her son go in and get the housing association's president or treasurer. Then have the same person identify her. Clearly the guard did not know her and was doing his job. In our guard house I see new guards all the time. But that still did not excuse him in shooting her.

Don't pass judgement too soon on the security guards....lets wait for the official investigation.

 

Question already asked....why she didn't simply park outside and call management

 

why she didn't have sticker

 

was she physically and verbally abusive to the security guards

Sounds like she was an arrogant bitch, who thought the rules didn't apply to her. If thats the case, she got her karma.

There were similar issues on the sub division we lived on. Some homeowners think they are royalty but are in fact tight fisted. Every year the Administrator had problems collecting the dues from some & getting them to get their stickers & passes. These were the same owners who shouted the loudest if guards didn't do their jobs. One homeowner pulled a gun on the guard because he tried to enforce the no sticker rule, so could have been the reverse of this story if the guard hadn't backed down.

 

The guards for the most part are damned if they do & damned if they don't. This one had clearly been told to enforce the regulations & she was being arrogant in refusing - Emborong and the slain woman had previous confrontations about the vehicle sticker rule, which La Paz didn’t follow. The act of telling here Son to ignore the guard & open the gate was probably the final insult to the guard. She paid the ultimate price.

There is no question she was abusive to the guards and again she had no right because they were just doing their job. As a guess only; she had a bad day and drove home ready ti tear into someone and the first one she saw were the guards. This is a tragedy that just did not need to be. For obvious reasons I standout and most of the people including the guards at least know of me. And once a month, I am sure you guys, like me have to go to your association's treasure and pay your fees. And since I am the one that does this they know me personally. In Rose;s case she could have done the same despite the fact she had a bad day and she ws looking for someone to have it. Its a tragedy that will put the guard in jail and has left her son an orphan.

Ballistics test on a shotgun? Their technology must be improving.

I don't know the womans financial status, but I am making the assumption that she had money or came from money. It wouldn't be the first time that I've heard of, or seen, an uppity Filipino come across as holier than thou or just downright condescending to another Filipino they perceive of a lesser status.

 

It's been said that life is cheap here and I agree. The security guard should have had control of his weapon.
