According to the statements of witnesses and results of initial police investigation,Geroldo Ramon Querijero went to PC Home Service Center to claim his repaired laptop. However, head technician Leo Laab refused to issue the repaired laptop since the customer did not bring his job order receipt.

A heated argument ensued after Laab still refused to hand over the laptop despite Qurijero’s insistence. At one point, witnesses said, Quirijero told Laab that he would get the receipt from his house and slap it on the suspect’s face. The argument quickly turned physical.

Police said Leo Laab then went out of the PC Home Service Center to a nearby hardware store to buy a knife, and when he came back, stabbed the victim several times. Witnesses tried to stop the suspect to no avail. Laab then went out of the store and escaped.

The victim was still able to walk several meters to the entrance of PC Home Service center before collapsing. He was then taken by witnesses to the hospital but died minutes later.

Murder charges await Leo Laab.
