Armed suspects reportedly shot the pick-up car owned by Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Director General Gregorio Catapang Jr. along skyway in Quezon City on Tuesday morning, March 19.

Based on BuCor's statement obtained by DZRH News, the shooting incident happened when security escorts were on the way to Quezon City to pick up BuCor Deputy Director General for Administration Al Perreras who borrowed the car from Catapang.

"The vehicle was hit at the rear windshield which shattered the bulletproof glass without penetration but the trajectory of the bullet was towards the passenger front side of the vehicle where Perreras usually sits," BuCor stated.

Security escort CO1 Leonardo Cabaniero, who was reportedly seated at the back of the card, was not hit.

The suspects onboard a gray Toyota Vios escaped at the Skyway's Nagtahan exit.

"Catapang said that both he and Perreras have been receiving death threats since they implemented various reforms in the agency and this incident will not deter them from continuing what they started. Perreras refuses to comment at the moment," the agency said.
