PLEB QC dismisses cop for shooting a student, demotes 4 others for failing to respond to the incident which happened right in front of the house they were drinking. Another cop was demoted for covering up the incident.

P/Cpl Reymark Rigor was removed from service after he was found guilty of grave misconduct for shooting Adrienne Dominique Cruz Castor last Feb. 8.

The QC People Law Enforcement Board also penalized P/Sms Neleazar Torrijos, P/Ssg Fernan Concepcion and P/Cpl Jimbeam Fernandez with one rank demotion for grave neglect of duty for their failure to respond to the shooting incident that happened right outside the house where they were drinking.

PLEB Executive Director Atty. Rafael Calinisan said Castor was on his way home aboard a Grab vehicle when an extremely intoxicated Rigor aimed a gun at Castor’s direction.

Shortly thereafter, Rigor shot him in the chest after Castor alighted from the Grab vehicle. The student survived the shooting.

PLEB said Torrijos, Concepcion and Fernandez along with Rigor, were engaged in a drinking spree in the house of Torrijos, also along Scout Rallos Extension, during the latter’s birthday celebration that night.

PLEB also demoted by one rank P/Ssg Bryan Busto for grave misconduct for covering up the said shooting incident during his investigation, after categorizing the incident as a mere case of “physical injuries” when it was a clear case of “frustrated murder.”

Meanwhile, the PLEB exonerated P/Ssg Jayson Osmena and P/Cpl Jaycee Tordil.

Mayor Joy Belmonte lauded the PLEB for its swift and impartial disposition of the case, saying this would encourage persons aggrieved by the police to file charges with the PLEB.

“I salute the People’s Law Enforcement Board of Quezon City. You have resolved this case in record time, without fear for your own safety,” said Belmonte.
