A suspect in the Lantawan massacre in Basilan currently working as a janitor at the Divisoria bus terminal was killed by motorcycle riding gunmen along Maria Clara Lobregat Highway last Saturday.

Divisoria Police Station Commander Chief Inspector Arlan Delumpines identified the victim as Alty Falcasantos, a resident of Boalan.

According to police reports, Falcasantos was on his way home after rendering duty at the Integrated Bus Terminal at around 10:35pm when one of two men riding tandem on board a motorcycle shot the victim.

The suspects sped away after the incident, leaving their victim lying on the ground, bloodied.

Divisoria police personnel recovered two spent shells of a .45 caliber pistol at the crime scene.

Delumpines said that the investigation is still ongoing to determine if the gun attack has something to do with the massacre incident in Lantawan, Basilan in which the victim is tagged as one of the suspects.  (Dan Toribio)
