PO3 Geoffrey Gutual of Cebu City Police Office Homicide Section said they even suspect one of the assailants used an improvised shotgun to kill the victim.

They also believe that the assailants are members of a certain gang called the Crips, but they are not yet certain if this particular incident is a fraternity- or gang-related incident. — Christopher Gabriel Bonjoc/BRP (THE FREEMAN)
