2 men killed in shootout with Rizal cops



MANILA, Philippines–Two men were killed after shooting at police in Rizal past midnight Friday, an official said.

Senior Superintendent Rolando Anduyan, Rizal provincial chief, said the shootout transpired in front of the Pamantasan ng Montalban in Kasiglahan Village, Barangay (village) San Jose in Rodriguez, around 12:50 a.m., killing the two still unidentified suspects on the spot.

He said police authorities were conducting checkpoint operations along the area when the suspects, who were onboard a motorcycle, were asked to stop as their vehicle didn’t have a plate number.

“Suspects sped away and one of them [backrider] opened fire upon the lawmen, prompting the latter to retaliate,” Anduyan said.

Recovered from the suspects, he said, were a Colt series 80 caliber .45, a Smith and Wesson caliber .38 revolver, two sachets of suspected shabu, a sachet of suspected marijuana, a strip of aluminum foil, eight fired cartridges, a cellular phone, and the Honda XRM motorcycle used by the suspects.

    Thank goodness the suspects are poor shooters. Must be one of those wanna-be-bad-guy-gangster thrill-seeking youngsters?

    Law enforcers must always conduct check points in the wee hours of the night. Surely, this will deter bad elements from doing their illegal trades at night. It’s another thing during the daytime.

    Tama yan, basta riding in tandem check agad,  salamat sa mga kapulisan natin who’s trying to keep our streets safer…

  • TheMightyOne

    Sana magpasa nang batas na bawal na ang tandem sa mga scooter o motorsiklo , isipin nyo gaano ka talamak ang riding in tandem, sa presyong 5 thousand to 20 thousand ay papatay sila ng isang buhay at take note eto ay talamak na business na sa buong pilipinas..

    As usual, shoot out or salvage ?


    Riding in tamden at night? Good point make it a law to have the cops at least check them out…

    If they can use this rate per day, two dead criminals, then the Philippines will have reduced the number to 730 criminals per year. No need to go to NBP, they must go straight to the cemetery to save on cost of adjudication and jailing. Recovered firearms must be traced back to its owners and the reporter who made this news must follow up relentlessly the traceability of the owners or these guns and mobile phones recovered. Maybe the supplier of the arms are there too.
