MANILA - The Davao City Police Office on Tuesday released the composite sketch of the man who gunned down Crown Regency Hotel owner Richard King last June 12.

"Ito yung sinabi ng mga witness na ganito yung mukha, pero medyo malalim yung pisngi daw," said Sr. Supt. Vicente Danao, chief of Davao City Police.

King, 56, was dining with his employees inside his building in Obrero, Davao City when he was shot at close range by the gunman.

King's family and the local government of Davao City have increased the initial P500,000 reward to P1.3 million for any information that could lead to the arrest of the hotel owner's killer.

Those who have information may contact the police at 224-1313, 300-1244, 0925-823-3276, or 0912-664-8951.

Meanwhile, Danao said they are looking at personal grudge or business rivalry as the possible motive behind King's killing. -- Reports from Vina Araneta and Francis Magbanua, ABS-CBN News Southern Mindanao
