Caloocan massacre leaves 2-year old orphaned

MANILA- When masked men burst into a house in Bagong Silang, North Caloocan and gunned down its occupants on Monday night, they did not just put an end to four lives — they also left a two-year-old boy orphaned, a single mother bereft of her teenage son, and a whole community quaking in fear of more bloodbath.

It was a few minutes before midnight when residents heard 10 consecutive gunshots from the home of Jefferson Viri, 35 and his common law wife Wang Robles, 24 in Phase 8B, Package 1B in Barangay 176.

Jefferson and Wang, meanwhile, orphaned their two-year-old son. The boy is now in the care of relatives.
