John Apacible shot dead

One of the casts of ABS-CBN’s “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin,” was shot dead in Cainta, Rizal early Sunday, police said.

John Apacible who portrayed Lt. Col. Santiago in “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin,” was allegedly shot by his uncle, Armando Rustia, a 60-year-old seaman.

Rustia surrendered to authorities in Antipolo, Rizal and was turned over to Cainta Police Station Chief Superintendent Emmanuel Bautista.

According to the suspect’s wife Sarah, Apacible and Rustia were drinking around 3 a.m. at their home at Prime Rose Street in Greenland Subdivision. A heated argument then ensued that eventually led to the shooting.

Sarah added that her husband only acted in self-defense after Apacible allegedly attacked him.

Apacible rose to fame after doing several sexy films in the past.
