Both Emiliano and Arnolito were aboard a Toyota Fortuner, with plate number TQS – 173, and were passing through in front of Molino III Elementary School when they were attacked.

Vangie Ilas, Emiliano’s wife, admitted that her husband was previously arrested for illegal drugs.

In an interview with DZRH’s Isyu, Bacoor Police Chief Supt. Vicente Cabatingan revealed that they have taken into custody the suspected gunman, a neighbor of the victims called ‘Eyoc’.

According to Cabatingan, Vangie, who was also inside the Toyota Fortuner but was unscathed during the incident, and Arnolito positively identified Eyoc as one of the suspects since he was not wearing a helmet during the incident.

Cabatingan said that Eyoc and Emiliano got into a dispute after the latter suspected the former of shooting him, however, the police are still looking for other possible motives involving the crime.

Authorities continue with their manhunt operations on the identity of the driver of the motorcycle who was wearing a helmet when the incident happened.
