Netizens join search for suspect in New Year shooting incident

Netizens are using the power of social media to search for the suspect in the killing of a teenager during a New Year shooting incident in Pangasinan.

Facebook user Erica Arlante posted a picture of the alleged gunman, Noel "Mario" Etrata, who fatally shot her niece, Lycah Loraraine Guiro.

According to Arlante, the incident happened around 3 a.m. on January 1, 2016 in Barangay Bayaoas, Urdaneta City.

For a still unknown reason, the suspect allegedly fired at Guiro and several others in the neigborhood, she said, but the 17-year-old girl was the only victim who did not survive.

Arlante, whose post has been shared over 16,000 times as of 7 a.m. Sunday, January 10, disclosed that her niece was hit in the back and the bullet went through under her breast.

Etrata fled and was nowhere to be found since, she added.
