SPO3 Arthur Lascañas said he was paid P20,00 to P100,000 for every killing carried out by the group.
"Kadalasan P20,000, minsan P50,000 depende sa status ng target...P 100,000," he said.
"Ito po ang umpisa, sa lahat ng ginagawa naming pagpatay sa Davao City, ilibing man o itapon sa laot, ito po ay binabayaran kami ni Mayor Rody Duterte," he said.

He said the group got his name after a drug raid in the house of a certain Allan Tancho where they killed Tancho's maid.
He said the DDS left a note that said: "Wag pamarisan - Davao Death Squad."
Lascañas claimed Duterte ordered the bombing of a mosque in Camamara Wa-An Davao City
Lascañas is the second person to talk about the existence of the Davao Death Squad. The DDS is widely believed as being behind the killings of a number of people in Davao City.
Witness and self-confessed hit man Edgar Matobato earlier claimed they killed people on Duterte’s orders, including Jun Pala, a broadcaster and critic of the then mayor of Davao City.
He also said the DDS was responsible for the bombing of a Muslim mosque after the Davao Cathedral was bombed in 1993.
Duterte has denied any involvement in the DDS, saying it was used as an opposition tool to try to derail his presidential bid.
