BAGUIO CITY – Two people were injured after they were involved in a commotion inside the residence of their friend at Lower Quirino Hill, here, Wednesday dawn.
Police authorities identified the victims as a certain Jephunneh Gumilan Fortu, 19, single, unemployed, and a resident of Lower Quirino Hill, Baguio City and a 16-year old minor.
Initial police investigation showed the victims had an initial drinking session inside the house of their friend when a misunderstanding suddenly ensued between the minor and a certain Christian Balangue that resulted into a fistfight until the minor sustained a stab wound on his leg.
One of the victims tried to pacify the commotion but because of alleged intoxication, he was involved in the altercation that prompted the minor to seek help from his older brother.
When they arrived in the area, a free for all suddenly erupted between the two parties that caused the victim to sustain multiple stab wound on the different parts of his body.
The victims were rushed to the Pines City Doctors Hospital for medical treatment where they are now undergoing close medical supervision.
