Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

CAMP OLI­VAS, Pam­panga - A sus­pected drug per­son­al­ity was killed when he traded shots with po­lice op­er­a­tives in Barangay San Joaquin, Sta. Ana, Pam­panga on Sun­day.

Po­lice Colonel Jean Fa­jardo, Pam­panga po­lice pro­vin­cial di­rec­tor, iden­ti­fied the slain sus­pect as Gary Tun­gol alias Ka Ro­man Bor­dado, a res­i­dent of the said barangay.

Fa­jardo said joint op­er­a­tives of the Sta. Ana po­lice and Pam­panga Pro­vin­cial In­tel­li­gence Branch armed with a search war­rant is­sued by Judge Mary Anne P. Padron-Rivera of Re­gional Trial Court-Branch 46, City of San Fer­nando, Pam­panga when they raided the house of Tun­gol.

She said that the po­lice op­er­a­tives were about to im­ple­ment the said search war­rant when the sus­pect tried to es­cape at the back por­tion of his house.

Fa­jardo said the sus­pect, while run­ning from the op­er­a­tives, fired his cal­iber .45 pis­tol to­wards them.

This prompted the op­er­a­tives to re­tal­i­ate killing Tun­gol on the spot, she said.

Re­cov­ered from the scene were 15 small heat-sealed trans­par­ent plas­tic sa­chets con­tain­ing sus­pected shabu, one cal­iber .45 M1911 A1 pis­tol loaded with am­mu­ni­tions, three mag­a­zines loaded with 40 pieces cal­iber .45 live am­mu­ni­tions and five spent shells for cal­iber .45.— Ric Sapnu
