Two sus­pected gun­run­ners were killed in an al­leged armed en­counter with op­er­a­tives of the Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion and De­tec­tion Group-North­ern Po­lice District in Caloocan on Fri­day.

Reg­gie de Guzman and an alias Jayson Paguia were killed in a sting for loose firearms at a house in Barangay 12 Fri­day morn­ing.

The sus­pects al­legedly fought it out with po­lice af­ter notic­ing that the buyer of­fered fake money for the firearms.

Po­lice re­cov­ered two 9mm bul­let cas­ings, two .45 cal­iber bul­let cas­ings, four sa­chets of sus­pected shabu, two .38 cal­iber re­volvers and a .45 cal­iber pis­tol from the sus­pects.

De Guzman was in the drug watch­list and he was a sus­pect in the killing of barangay watch­man An­to­nio Braquin, po­lice said.

Po­lice Of­fi­cers 2 Mel­chor Rawis and Emer­son Fru­tas were ar­rested along Road 10 in Rawis, Tondo just be­fore noon fol­low­ing com­plaints by barangay of­fi­cials, who al­leged that the law­men pro­tected il­le­gal cock­fight­ing op­er­a­tions.

The CITF re­cov­ered a .45 cal­iber pis­tol, a 9mm Glock pis­tol, am­mu­ni­tion, two fight­ing cocks, two gaffing blades, and P15,000 bet money from the po­lice­men.
