After 20 days of thorough investigation on the murder attempt on Felix Custodio, barangay chairman of Baluno, police have come up with the identities of the suspects and the case has been forwarded to the City Prosecutor Office last Thursday.

City Police Director Sr. Supt. Edwin Deocampo identified the suspects as Gani Jalil y Gaddong alias Tammy Gaddong, Gregorio Macoycruz y Biavilla, Hassan Kahal and Arcel Kahal.

Deocampo disclosed that the Ayala police led by Supt. Hado Edding have forwarded a case of frustrated murder to the prosecutor’s office with supporting documents including sworn affidavits of witnesses pointing to the four persons as responsible for the gun attack on Custodio, who is still undergoing medication at a hospital.

The forwarded frustrated murder case was received by the prosecutor on duty Atty. Ivy Damayo, under IS number IX-06-inq-11B-00072.

The suspects however are still at large but the police assured that they will be arrested as soon as a warrant will be issued by the court.

Deocampo further said the Ayala police conducted a thorough investigation and managed to gather evidences and statements from witnesses before coming up with the case.

Investigators also submitted to the prosecutor’s office the improvised shotgun and a pair of slippers found near the crime scene.

Custodio was found wounded with a bullet in the head at 6 a.m. last January 21. He was on his way home coming from the Barangay Hall when a gunman shot him. — Dan Toribio Jr.
