Supt. Heryl Bruno, Malolos police chief, said Pito and Lenard opened fire as soon as the lawmen conducting a buy bust announced that the drug deal was part of a police operation.

Recovered from the suspects were five big plastic bags of marijuana, 11 sachets of marijuana, 8 sachets of shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride), a hand grenade and an improvised cal. 22 pistol.

At 4:20 a.m. in Barangay Look, a suspect identified as Marvin Lontoc was killed when he allegedly resisted arrest and fought the police after a buy bust, Bruno said.

Both operations were done with agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, Bruno added. /cbb
