Pinoy chiropractor shot to death in his Ontario clinic
ONTARIO, CANADA — A Filipino chiropractor was murdered in his own clinic in Canada.
Last Friday, 50-year-old Dr. Ferdinand “Fred” Mejilla was allegedly shot to death by 44-year-old David Williamson, the husband of Mejilla’s receptionist.
Authorities believe the gunman, Williamson, then shot himself.
He was then rushed to the hospital for his critical injuries. The suspect, who was also a client of the Filipino victim, passed away today in the hospital.
Authorities are not releasing any information on whether there was any other connection between Mejilla, Williamson, and his wife Shawna.
Mejilla leaves behind five children.
A police news release says his family requests that their privacy be respected during this difficult time.
Some colleagues and clients have described Mejilla as a man of integrity — a caring and kind professional.
