(Eagle News)–The rifle used in the killing of Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo has been recovered.

The police said the rifle was retrieved from  the suspects.

The Special Investigation Task Force (SITG) tasked to probe the case is also looking into the other firearms used in the March 4 attack.

The police said it was also investigating the “original owner, seller, and buyer” of the vehicles used in the attack.

Authorities have arrested at least four people over the killing of Degamo right outside his residence in Pamplona on March 4.
