Hernando was driving in the village of Paseo de Blas after withdrawing money from a bank when the suspects, who were also onboard a motorcycle, went near him and shot him to death. The suspects took Hernando’s motorbike and his bag, which contained about PHP443,000 (US$9,113). According to a friend of the victim, the suspects were trailing after Hernando since he had left the bank.

The police were able to identify the suspects after learning that the motorcycle they used during the robbery was bought online. The authorities were able to track down the vehicle’s original owner, who provided them with photos of the suspects. A witness also said that he saw both suspects at the crime scene before and after Hernando was robbed.
