Lady cop faces probe after gun used in Bohol shooting spree

A POLICEWOMAN is facing administrative investigation after her firearm was used in a shooting rampage where two persons were killed and another one was wounded in Calape, Bohol.

Investigators will try to find out why the 9mm caliber pistol of PO1 Rosalie Cuaro went to her lover, Maricel Ramos, said Supt. Ricky Delilis, chief of the operations division of the Bohol Provincial Police Office (BPPO).

Ramos was killed by responding police after she fatally shot Cuaro’s mother and her 46-year-old brother. Cuaro could be charged for negligence for failing to secure her firearm, Delilis said.

Delilis said that according to the investigation, the gun was registered in Cuaro’s name. Cuaro won the gun in a raffle draw in a Christmas party last December among the police.

It was last Feb. 4 when Ramos went on a shooting spree after she failed to locate Cuaro. Cuaro had not gone home after she and Ramos fought.  Ramos had suspected the policewoman of having a relationship with someone else.

Ramos went to Cuaro’s family in Barangay Ulbujan to look for her. When she was told that Cuaro was not around, Ramos shot the policewoman’s elder brother, Vicente, 51.

Cuaro then barged inside the house and shot Rosalie’s other brother, Joel, 48, and mother Rosita, 72. Joel and Rosita died on the spot.

Police conducted a hot pursuit operation and found Ramos in their house. Police said that Ramos fired shots at them and refused to surrender, prompting them to return fire.

Ramos succumbed to gunshot wounds in the head. Cuaro accused her fellow policemen of “overkilling” Ramos, an allegation that Insp. Cresente Gurrea, chief of Calape police station, denied.
