MANILA, Philippines (AP) — A 13-year-old boy who shot his 16-year-old friend inside a busy Philippine mall then turned the weapon on himself died Wednesday and left the other boy brain dead, raising questions about gun control in a country awash in firearms.

Authorities were investigating how the 13-year-old obtained the .22-caliber pistol and smuggled it into the mall in Pampanga province's Mexico township, area police chief Wilson Santos said. He said the shooting Tuesday was a crime of passion and that the boys were in a romantic relationship after meeting through Facebook in May.

The young age of the victims has stunned a nation accustomed to violent crime — U.N. figures show that the Philippines ranked 10th worldwide in 2005 for homicides involving guns.

Santos said hospital authorities informed him that the younger boy died Wednesday afternoon, more than 24 hours after the shooting.

The older boy was brain dead and being kept alive by ventilators and medicine at a private hospital, Dr. Alfonso Danac said. His parents were still deciding whether to remove him from life support.

The 13-year-old, apparently in a fit of jealously, left a suicide note that he was "willing to die together with" his friend, Santos said.

The shooting was the second in about a week inside one of the country's biggest mall chains, SM malls, where guards are posted at entrances and bomb-sniffing dogs patrol the premises to deter crime and terrorist threats.

An estranged wife fatally shot her husband Sept. 14 and killed a security guard who tried to stop her from hurting herself in the parking area of a mall in a Manila suburb. She is facing murder charges.

After the latest attack, Rep. Mitos Magsaysay called for stricter enforcement of gun control laws, and urged parents, schools and communities to interact more with a generation of Filipino children weaned on cell phones and computers.

"What's alarming is that the gun was in the possession of a 13-year-old," Magsaysay said.

She said the gun owner, who has not yet been identified by police, would be criminally liable for allowing the boy to get hold of the weapon.

Unregistered guns account for nearly half the 2.3 million firearms in the country, fueling crime, election violence, terrorism and Muslim and communist insurgencies. About 98 percent of gun-related crimes from 2004 to 2008 were committed with unregistered firearms, police said last year.

I can't help but feel sad about this news. This is just another manifestation of how CRUCIAL is the role of parents in child rearing especially in the early ages of his/her life. This 13-yr-old boy expressed his thoughts & feelings through his FB account and not to his family & true friends. There were signs and gestures that he's going to commit suicide but nobody notices and cares. Hayy, if only parenting could be done in just an abrakadabra click!

Sus no? at that age, ingon ana ang ilang view sa kinabuhi..mabaw kaayo. Children must feel jud that they are secured and well-loved by the family bisan pa'g mawala ng ilang hinigugma or anything that they are obsessed with kay maingon ana jud ang ilang desisyon.

lahi na jud kaayo ang mga youth karon reynang bujog....
kami lagi sa una bisan pirti namo kalisod wa jud mi maghuna huna nga
magsuicide kai gitanom na sa among alimpatakan nga life is a gift
from God and i believe that God will be the only one who will take
our breathe away in His own time...
pinasagdan pod cguro ni sila sa ilang mga ginikanan...
basin gasige nalang ug fb & bb ning ilang mga parents wala na ka
hinomdom ug tudlo sa ilang mga anak unsay angayan nga buhaton...
sa imo ng giingon crucial stage jud ng mga edara..they need
the parents guidance, advices & etc......

time pa sa gabz, mura'g wapa naregister deri sa BB ilang parents..hehehe..Well, they are really the products of misguidance or untrained or broken family plus dis-orientation about BELIEF and FAITH in GOD!

Tinuod jud na imong giingon Gabz..ako pud adtong bata pa'ko haskang lisora pud, makakaon pero muna-muna pero instead of thinking nga mobuhat og maot, determinado nuon ta'ng mohaw-as sa kalisod in the right way..we've learned how to pray and have strong faith in GOD that someday life could be better by HIS ways, in HIS time. We've learned how to wait and extended our patience on everything that we long for.

Mao na angay jud ang mga bata ug teenagers nga crucial ang mga pangutok kanunay istorya-istoryahon sa mga parents..i-follow up jud kay aning mga edara ang gitawag og MAPUSOK/ARESGADO kaayo..kung wala'y proper nga guidance, mahog jud sa magbuot-buot og ilahang desisyon..
