A drunkEN security guard beset with financial problems locked himself inside the security office of Eton Centris Commercial Center along EDSA in Quezon City, almost causing the mall to shut down on Wednesday. Police said Herminigildo Marsula Jr, 33, married with two children and a resident of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan had a drinking session with a fellow security guard earlier and was allowed to rest inside the security office. However, he went out banging the wall and punched a passerby identified as Laniel Alegre Aquino, 23, of Biñan, Laguna, who sought assistance from the Centris Police Assistance Center. But Marsula aimed his firearm at responding poicemen and locked himself inside the security office. This prompted the policemen to call for back up. Supt. Pedro Sanchez, Station 10 (Kamuning) commander, was able to convince Marsula to surrender at past 8 a.m.
