Jason Infante Death: An SK Chairman Fatally Stabbed in Makati

A Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) chairman named Jason Infante (Jason Patrick Infante) died while two others were injured during a stabbing incident in Taguig Street, Barangay Valenzuela in Makati City. Infante, who is just 18 years old, died from a stab through his chest.

The Police Crime Investigation and Detection Group or (CIDG) in Makati now have under their custody the suspect named John Paul Buan. Buan is reportedly from Cogeo, Antipolo City.

In an interview with Radyo Patrol, the victim's brother Michael Infante said that Jason wasn't the intended victim of the suspect. The suspect was going to stab the rescuer who was with Jason at the time. The rescuer was able to dodge the attack. That was when Jason tried to disarm the suspect and got stabbed in the process.
The rescuer as well as a barangay kagawad were injured in the incident. The motive behind the attack is still unknown and being investigated. As of this writing, Jason Infante with the hashtag #RIPJasonInfante is trending on Twitter, a social networking site.
