A gun-for-hire assassin was behind the killing of lawyer Emmanuel Ledesma Acuña Jr., said Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on television on Sunday.
In his television program Gikan sa Masa Para sa Masa on ABS/CBN, Duterte said police have identified the killer but did not give other details.
The police will file the case anytime, he said.
On Monday, Davao City Police director Vicente Danao confirmed police have a suspect.
We are preparing an air-tight case, Danao told GMA Davao’s news television program Testigo, to explain the delay in the filing of the case.
