Caloocan police’s ‘one-time, big-time’ ops: 3 killed

/ 11:45 AM September 08, 2017

Two members of a pay-to-kill and drug peddling syndicate, and a policeman were killed in separate incidents under Caloocan City police’s “one-time, big-time” operation early Friday morning.

Caloocan Police chief Senior Supt. Jemar Modequillo said police operatives shot and killed Jason dela Cruz, alias “Jason Killer,” in Sampaguita Subdivision, Camarin around 4 a.m., after the suspect engaged his men in a shootout, which also resulted in the death of Police Officer 3 Junior Hilario.

Hilario sustained a gunshot wound in the head and died at the Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital.

Modequillo said Dela Cruz was a leader of a crime syndicate involved in gun-for-hire and illegal drug activities in Caloocan. KGA
