The victim left the residence around 7 a.m., according to his son, who was not named in the report. At around 7:15 a.m., they were informed of the occurrence by a relative who lived close.

They are completely unaware, according to his son, because he did not mention any conflict. He does not go out very much because he is 58 years old. He went on to say that if they hadn’t known he had opponents, we might have been able to reach an agreement.

 “Kinuha niya sa akin si papa ng ganon ganon na lang, ng hindi namin naipagtanggol, hindi namin nakita, hindi namin nalaman. Kung alam lang namin na may kaaway siya, siguro pinag-ayos namin,” his son said.

Given the current quarantine restrictions, the local police department is investigating the likelihood that the gunman just pretended to be a food delivery rider. Food delivery drivers are now classified as APOR (authorized person outside residence). APOR are those who are permitted to leave their houses with the reimposed of strict quarantine rules in response to an increase in COVID-19 cases due to the spread of the Delta variant.

“Alam naman natin, parang naging pribilehiyo sa mga food services or courier services na maging essential ‘di ba, kasi considered as APOR din ‘yon eh, naging essential,” Imus Policy Duty Investigator Police Senior Sergeant Roy Vincent Reyes said in the report.
