19 November: An inmate died while two others were injured in a riot inside Marikina City Jail, Manila, on Sunday afternoon.
The lone fatality was identified as Roel Diaz, who died from a gunshot wound during the scuffle at around 4:30 p.m. at the jail, located on the 5th floor of the Marikina City Justice Hall.
Police said the riot sparked during the inmates’ protest against some of the jail’s policies, including the requiring of visitors to take off their clothes during inspection. A police report said jail guards responded to the riot by firing rubber bullets. However, Diaz and two other inmates, identified as Jayson Malicdin and John Cariño, sustained gunshot wounds.
