MANILA, Philippines — A 12-year-old girl in Imus City, Cavite is now in a hospital after she was shot by a man whose online television watching was interrupted on Friday night.

A police report said suspect Reynaldo Managan, 55, was watching online on a television inside a house in Barangay Alapan 1-B when the internet connection was cut at around 7 p.m.
