MANILA – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, has ordered the Cebu City police to conduct a thorough investigation into the killing of a local fraternity leader last week.
“I have ordered the Cebu City Police to look into possible angles in the killing of Richard Buscaino, Alpha Kappa Rho fraternity Central Visayas chapter president and former Barangay Calamba, Cebu City councilor,” Eleazar said in a statement Sunday night.
Eleazar said part of the investigation is a background check and the death threats he received before he was gunned down along Tres de Abril St. in Barangay Calamba on October 8.
Buscaino survived an attack in 2018.
Eleazar also condoled with the family of the victim and vowed to monitor the progress of the investigation.
Authorities said Buscaino was driving toward the interior section of Barangay Labangon when the suspects attacked him.
Law enforcers recovered six empty shells from an unidentified gun at the crime scene.
Eleazar urged those who have information about this incident to come out and help authorities in shedding light on the case. (PNA)
