MANILA, Philippines - A 12-year-old boy allegedly committed suicide in Barangay Potrero, Malabon City Wednesday night.

Marc Ivan Chua, an eighth grader, reportedly shot himself with his father’s gun in the family car, a white Isuzu Altera, which was parked in the garage, said Senior Superintendent Severino Abad Jr., city police chief.

The boy’s father, Mark Jason Chua, 44, told Abad he scolded his son for failing to go to school, adding that the boy even joined them for dinner that night.

Abad said they will wait for the results of a paraffin examination on the boy’s father to determine if the boy indeed killed himself.
