    We read about a shoot out between the bloods and crips in downtown Dumaguete yesterday in the newspaper.

    Is it safe to walk the streets of Dumaguete these days, without risking being caught in a crossfire?

    Bloods and Crips Gang in Dumaguete City

    Bloods and Crips Gang in Dumaguete City

    Two young men suspected of being members of the street gang “Bloods”, were arrested shortly after midnight Monday following the shooting of three minors believed to be members of the rival gang, “Crips”.

    The suspects were identified as Ricky Zamora Oliveros, 22, single, of Barangay Camanjac and Ralph Ryan Valencia, 19, single, a resident of Barangay Daro, all in Dumaguete City.

    Insp. Romulo Lledo of the Dumaguete police said around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday, the police station received a call regarding a shooting incident that transpired along San Juan Street in downtown Dumaguete.

    The victims, aged 15, 16 and 17, and all males, were rushed to the hospital for treatment.

    Initial police investigation showed that one of the victims sustained a gunshot wound on his abdomen and another on his right arm, while the third minor victim’s injury could not yet be ascertained.

    A third suspect, believed to be an accessory to the crime, was also brought to the police station for questioning on his perceived links to Oliveros and Valencia, the police said.

    In an interview, Oliveros and Valencia claimed to be members of the Bloods gang and that the purported shooting incident early Tuesday was in retaliation to at least two previous shooting attempts on them by alleged Crips members in recent weeks.

    The police, however, did not recover any firearm from the possession of Oliveros or Valencia.

    This is the second shooting incident in recent days in what many believe is a resurgence of the “gang war” in Dumaguete, although Insp. Lledo declined to comment on it, saying police are still conducting further investigation.

    Being serious... im really worried about Rhoody. He wears his cap backwards so maybe he will get mistaken for a local gang banger. Plus he still looks in his teens :wink: Sorry Rhoody just making light of the nonsense drama ? Is Dumaguete safe, a lot safer than the western world :eek:

    In this country a foreigner strolling about at late hours needs to be able to "read vibes" for the area that he's at.
    If you don't understand that, then you might be wise to stay in at night.

    When I read the newspaper piece about the bloods and crips having a war in Dumaguete, I laughed silently.

    But after learning more, it's really not a laughing matter.




    With the local culture of corruption, and the fact that many of the gang members are from affluent families... Something tells me, this very serious problem of teenage gangsters with guns and drugs will be ongoing.

    Everyone knows the dangers of gang territories in America. Most people avoid those areas {like the plague} unless they are addicted to drugs, or don't have the means to escape-

    I sure as HELL don't want my son going to a school where gangs are going to harass/recruit him. Especially a private school that I'm paying good money for...

    Got to agree with you Marc. Never felt uncomfortable here or anywhere else in the province. Came across the NPA in the hills around Sta. Catalina - no problem. But in London I wouldn't go south of the river after dark.
