They were identified as Jose Antoque Jr., 51, a resident of Block 11, Lot 2, El Rio Vista Village in Bacaca, Davao City; Ricky Faulve,47, of Barangay Pida, Panabo, Davao del Sur; and Ariel Gubantes and Ramon Catamisan, both 30-year-old residents of Bgy. Kapalong, Davao del Norte.

Corpus said that recovered from the suspects were two loaded caliber .38 revolvers without serial numbers, four heat-sealed plastic sachets containing suspected shabu and several drug paraphernalia as well as part of their loot which include one iPhone unit and a laptop computer.

The PRO12 director said that members of the General Santos City Police Station 4 and the City Mobile Force Company cornered the four suspects along Mabuhay Road following a chase.

It turned out that at around 7:10 p.m. Saturday, two of the suspects identified as Faulve and Gubantes knocked at the gate of the Suarez resident at 4th Street, Manansala Subdivision in Bgy. San Isidro.
