Police identify gunman in Tisa shootings

THE suspect in the shooting dead of two persons in two separate incidents on November 29 and December 25, 2022 in Barangay Tisa, Cebu City has already been identified.

But Police Major Janelito Marquez, chief Labangon Police Station, did not mention the name of the suspect who allegedly killed Mark Ramil Bayang, 30, and Mike Rivero Cruz, 33, pending an ongoing investigation.

Bayan, a resident of Sitio Culo, Barangay Labangon, was shot in Sitio Kadasig Phase 3, Barangay Tisa on the evening of November 29, while Gomez was gunned down near his residence in San Jose Village, Tisa, past midnight on December 25.

Marquez said a murder case has already been filed against the suspect for the killing of Bayang.

He also asked some witnesses in the murder of Gomez to cooperate with the police so they can file a similar case against the suspect, who is believed to be hiding in upland Cebu City.

The police official said they are just waiting for the warrant to be released before making the arrest. (BBT, TPT)
