CAMP OLIVAS, Pam­panga - A sus­pected drug pusher was killed when he tried to shoot it out with po­lice op­er­a­tives dur­ing a buy-bust op­er­a­tion in Barangay San Nico­las, City of San Fer­nando, Pam­panga, Tues­day.

Po­lice Lt. Col. Levi Hope Basilio, chief of po­lice of City of San Fer­nando, iden­ti­fied the fa­tal­ity as James Tu­la­but, a res­i­dent of the said barangay.

Basilio said the sus­pect, when he no­ticed the pres­ence of po­lice op­er­a­tives dur­ing the buy-bust op­er­a­tion, fired to­wards them.

This prompted the law­men to re­tal­i­ate killing him on the spot, he said.

Re­cov­ered from the crime scene were two sa­chets of shabu, an im­pro­vised gun and P500 marked money.

Basilio said the sus­pect is listed as a drug per­son­al­ity in the city. — Ric Sapnu
