PAGADIAN CITY, Zamboanga del Sur – PO1 Jesamm Jed Catacutan is currently in a coma fighting for his life at the Intensive Care Unit of Mendero Hospital after sustaining a gunshot injury at the back of the head while on his way to his post at eight o’clock in the morning, yesterday.

The newly-recruited police officer went to a convenience store near GSIS Office, for his prepaid load when unknown assailants in a motorcycle shot him at the back of his head severely hitting his spinal cord. The bullet went out his face and hit another bystander.

According to the Facebook status of Catacutan’s cousin, Sandra Zamora Galucan, their family is up to now, clueless on who the assailant is given the amiable disposition of Jed.

The local police are still on their investigation as to who the culprit was and its motive in doing so. The family, friends, workmates, and former classmates of PO1 Catacutan deeply mourns for justice on his mishap.

Before becoming a police officer, Jed graduated at the Mindanao State University – Iligan Institute of Technology three years ago. He was the Prime Minister of the Political Science Society in 2008 and was a battalion commander of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps of the MSU-IIT. He also played for the college basketball varsity.

He recently graduated from six-month training at Regional Training School of the Philippine Public Safety College in Zamboanga City. He took his oath last December.

  1. Updates and details were added on the above article. As previously mentioned, the incident did not happen in Zamboanga City but in Pagadian where PO1 Catacutan was assigned. It was affirmed that gunmen on motorcycles where the assailant although their identity is yet to be known.

  2. i hope the gunmen will be identified soon...Jed is such a good person and doesn't deserve such. maybe it was just a mistaken identity and the bullet is supposed to be for somebody else, not for him...tsk tsk tsk!

  3. Rest in Peace, my dear friend from MSU-IIT,
    PO1 Jed Catacutan (1987-2012)

    You've left early, dude... Hope to see you on the other side. Sikhai.

  4. We will always remember this guy. Silent, Enigmatic, to a certain degree strict but he was looked up to by many of us. He was proficient, he was disciplined, and most of all he was a friend to all of his men, his peers, and his superiors. He will be remembered, and he will be avenged.
