MANILA, Philippines – Here’s a case of New Year revelry gone too far.
A video circulating on Facebook shows a group of men taking turns to indiscriminately fire their guns to the sky on New Year’s Eve. At least 6 shots were fired.
Facebook user Drew Lutchina originally uploaded the video on his page but the account was deactivated after the post went viral.
A concerned citizen sent a copy of the original version of the video, as well as screen grabs of Lutchina’s timeline, to Rappler.

The video has since been reposted in a gun club page on Facebook, where netizens expressed their outrage over the illegal act.
