Closed-circuit television footage helped police home in on a suspect in the near-fatal shooting of a barangay captain in Surigao City last Dec. 10.
Police arrested last Wednesday Rudy Montecer Arabis, driver of the motorcycle in the shooting of Barangay Rizal chairman Severo del Rosario.
Del Rosario managed to identify Arabis from CCTV footage, city police said.
Recovered from Arabis was a motorcycle believed used in the shooting. Two of Arabis’ companions – a gunman and an accomplice – remain at large.
Investigation showed gunmen shot del Rosario while he was on his way home. Del Rosario was wounded in the shoulder.
