The victim was identified as Guillermo Imorecha, 28, a native of Tubod, Lakewood, Zamboanga del Sur and temporarily residing in Pasonanca village, seven kilometers north of the city, the police said.
Imorecha, who was married with two children, is a stay-in security guard at a warehouse in Pasonanca village and drives habal-habal to augment his income to feed his family.

Investigation continues to unmask the suspects, the police said. (Bong Garcia)
