In the video, Tanto went out of his Hyundai Eon to confront Geralde, eventually shooting him several times. The conduction sticker of Tanto’s car was then used to trace his identity. Reports also showed a bystander who was accidentally hit by a stray bullet.
Earlier, the Philippine Army had also launched a manhunt against Tanto, whom Army spokesperson Col. Benjamin Hao confirmed as a reservist.
Aside from the army, the Manila Police District (MPD) also organized a manhunt against the shooter, with its acting director Sr. Supt. Joel Napoleon Coronel saying, "Dead or alive, we want him."
Manila city mayor Joseph Estrada and Caloocan city mayor Oca Malapitan both offered a P100,000 bounty for Tanto’s capture.
Malapitan said that it’s only just for his office to extend its helping hand through the bounty because Tanto was a resident of Caloocan city.
The Hyundai Eon which was seen on the footage was found in Nueva Vizcaya.
Tanto will reportedly be turned over to the Manila Police District. -Kami Media
