Arceo said Wednesday, June 29, the cash reward will come from his own pocket as he wanted to give immediate justice to the victim and his family.
The victim, Leonardo Espinosa of Barangay 1, Hinigaran, was shot dead June 4 by an unidentified man on a motorcycle in Barangay 1. His lone passenger was unharmed but three bystanders were wounded by stray bullets.
Police said they are looking into grudges as possible motive behind the killing since Espinosa’s family was previously involved in a misunderstanding with another family.
Arceo said the cash reward will encourage the public who may have witnessed the incident to surface and help the police in the investigation.
However, as of Thursday, June 30, Arceo said he has not received any call or text from anyone regarding the incident despite the reward.
Despite the incident, Arceo noted that Hinigaran is still generally peaceful.
