THE Bacolod City Police Station 4 is still conducting a thorough investigation to identify the persons behind the killing of a minor in Purok Bayanihan, Barangay Villamonte on Monday, November 30.
Police Major Charles Gever, chief of Police Station 4, said they are eyeing two persons in the killing of the 17-year-old victim, who was identified as a notorious robbery suspect in Barangay Villamonte.
He said the victim (name withheld for being a minor) sustained multiple wounds when an unidentified assailant fired at him around 3:45 a.m.
