Romeo de Leon, 72; Samuel Cobilla Jr.; Noela Agliones, 7; and siblings Hobbie John, 6; and Robbie John Britanico, 4 were recognized by Maj. Malu Calubaquib, spokesperson for Police Regional Office 5 (PRO-5). Due to a bullet wound, Hades John Britanico is in critical condition.

Arthur de Leon, the suspect who escaped following the event, is still being pursued by police. The victims were watching television when a suspect dressed in camouflage entered their home in Barangay Tarusanan and shot them with an M16 Armalite rifle about 5:45 p.m., according to authorities.

Calubaquib revealed that the victims were the suspect’s relatives who were simply enraged over a land dispute. According to a statement from one of the victims’ relatives, the suspect’s brother allegedly killed one of the victims’ brothers in the 2020 massacre.

“Sa lupa pare, kamag-anak din ng hipag ko. Nagtanim ng sama ng loob ‘yung suspect dahil away sa lupa. Una, pinatay kapatid ng hipag ko in a close range sa ulo ang tama. Year 2020 pa ‘yun, ngayon bumalik gusto talaga silang ubusin,” he explained.
