In 1964, award-winning actor-producer Leroy Salvador figured in an unpleasant incident when he accidentally killed a movie producer. Claiming self-defense, he went to the police and confessed to the killing. From the front page of The Manila Times, here's that full account----

Actor Kills Cine Producer
Leroy Salvador yields, claims self defense

September 28, 1964- Leroy Salvador, well-known movie actor-producer, shot to death Jesus Consul, another movie producer, at the latter’s residence at 289 Banawe st., Quezon City, at 1:22 p.m. yesterday. Salvador, 35, of Metrica st., Sampaloc, surrendered to the QC police 30 minutes after the shooting. He claimed Consul was shot while the two were grappling for Consul’s revolver. Consul, 40, was dead on arrival at the National Orthopedic Hospital. He was hit in the left chest.

Salvador told investigators that he and Consul quarreled over the use of a bus Salvador had leased from Consul’s Movie Philippines, Inc. during the shooting of “Dugo ng Sugatan.” The film is produced by Salvador’s Golden Harvest Productions. Salvador said Consul was sore over the damage to the bus engine while it was under lease by Golden Harvest Promotions. Consul allegedly charged Salvador with having failed to supply gasoline for the bus while it was in his custody. When he tried to deny the charge, Salvador said, Consul became belligerent. He said he went near to put his arm around the other man’s shoulder to placate him but Consul, he said, must have misunderstood his intention. Suddenly, he said, he saw Consul whip out his gun, a licensed .38 caliber Colt. Salvador said he was grappling with Consul for possession of the gun when it went off. He surrendered the gun.

The only witnesses to the incident were four men who went with Salvador to Consul’s residence. Salvador said he went there yesterday to edit and process the film of “Dugo ng Sugatan.” Salvador said he leased the bus and other movie equipment for P14, 500.00. The actor surrendered to Pat. Vicente Sardea, desk officer at the QC detective bureau at 1:50 p.m. “I shot somebody,” Salvador said when he turned himself in. The QC police last night readied a charge of homicide against the actor.
