Task Force Ungab spokesperson Senior Insp. Jonathan Taneo revealed that they have already identified the possible gunman involved in the killing of former Ronda town vice-mayor and lawyer Jonnah John Ungab.

However, Taneo revealed that the suspect was killed in a police operation in Buenavista, Bohol last month.

The operation was conducted by members of the Bohol Police Intelligence Branch (PIB), Regional Intelligence Division (RID-7) and Regional Special Operations Group in Central Visayas (RSOG-7) last February 22.

The suspect was the subject of the service of an arrest warrant for killing a police officer in the same town.

Recovered from the said operation were a .45 caliber firearm and several ammunitions, which are now subjected to forensic examination by the Regional Crime Laboratory.

Investigators had also asked Pearl Ungab, the victim’s wife to identify a sweatshirt worn by the suspect.

Taneo asked media reporters to withhold the name of the suspect as they wait for the results of the examination which may be released after a week.
