Ayon kay Bacolod City Police Office Spokesperson Police Lt. Col. Ariel Pico, may nakakita at nakapagbigay ng impormasyon sa imbestigador na bago binaril ang biktima, may kinakausap ito na isang lalaki sa mismong lugar kung saan nangyari ang krimen.

Dagdag pa ng pulisya, sinabi ng ilang nakakita na may kinalaman sa ilegal na droga ang transaksyon ng dalawa.

Imbes na shabu, tawas umano ang ibinigay ni Hosain sa lalaki kaya nagkasagutan ang dalawa.

Hinablot umano ni Hosain ang bag ng lalaki na naglalaman ng pera kaya lalong nagalit ang lalaki at binaril nito si Hosain saka tumakas sakay ng van.
