Ernesto David was a Filipino who killed five people and seriously wounded at least 25 others when detonating a fragmentation grenade at the Sulok Pub, a discotheque in Manila, Philippines on December 3, 1980. The 28-year-old and three others left the establishment in rage when they were refused credit to buy drinks, but he returned at around 3 a.m. and tossed the grenade onto the dance floor, killing the club's manager, two bar employees, and two customers. He was arrested on December 4 and confessed to the crime.[1][2][3][4][5]
