Meanwhile, a motorcycle believed to be the vehicle used by Panzuelo being found in the vicinity of the encounter area is now subject of coordination by the police investigators with the Land Transportation Office (LTO) to establish registered ownership.(CJ)

Writer's Note: There are conflicting data as to the number of suspects subjected to hot pursuit. It took this writer two days trying to get in touch with the Force Commander of the SPFMC and the OIC-COP of Calbayog Police Station for them to shed light on the conflicting data. The efforts has yielded negatively.
