13-year-old boy in SM Pampanga mall shooting is dead, vital organs to be donated

MANILA, Philippines—The 13-year-old boy who attempted to commit suicide after shooting a friend inside SM Pampanga mall Tuesday is pronounced dead Wednesday afternoon, said a report by Jong Manlapaz of 990 AM Radyo Inquirer.

Quoting Dr. Alfonso Danac, head of the emergency department of Jose B. Lingad Memorial Hospital in San Fernando, Pampanga, the report said the boy’s kidney and cornea will be donated to the National Kidney Institute and an eye bank in Metro Manila, respectively.

The family of the 13-year-old, whose identity has been withheld because he is a minor, earlier authorized the doctors to unplug the life support system that has kept the boy alive.

The 17-year-old victim remains in the ICU and considered brain dead.
