A policeman and three others were killed during an ambush in Talisay City, Cebu, Friday.

Among the fatalities was PO3 Michael Santino Cortez, Central Visayas regional police spokesman Supt. Reyman Tolentin said.

Two unidentified men who were with Cortez inside a sports utility vehicle were also killed, while a woman who was reportedly caught in the middle of the shooting was found dead with bullet wounds, about 200 meters away, he said.

The incident occurred in Sitio Ranger, Brgy. Pooc, around 12:30 p.m.

Officials of Brgy. Biasong informed local police of the incident, so lawmen were immediately sent to cordon the area, Tolentin said.

The slain policeman was allegedly in President Rodrigo Duterte's "narco list," while the woman was only collecting garbage when she got caught in the shooting, according to radio report.

Local police are still investigating the incident, Tolentin said.
