BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
The bullet used by the gunman in the murder of a businessman Monday night in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, was of a government type that cannot be obtained easily by civilians.
Supt. Alet Virtucio, deputy provincial police director for administration, said the spent shell recovered at the scene where Aries Christopher Alvarez was gunned down, bore the marking “RPA”.
He said “RPA” stands for “Republic of the Philippines Arsenal”, a head-stamp code imprinted on small arms ammunition manufactured by the Government Arsenal of the Philippines.
