LUCENA CITY – An alleged drug pusher was killed, while two others were arrested in  police buy-bust operations in Lucena City and Sariaya town in Quezon province on Wednesday, police said on Thursday.

Suspected drug pusher Archie Manalo, 35, was slain after he reportedly ran away and shot at the arresting officer with his caliber .38 revolver after he sold “shabu” (crystal meth) in a transaction in Barangay (village) Dalahican around 11:30 a.m. Lucena police chief Supt. Reydante Ariza said in a report. Manalo missed his target then another policeman retaliated and killed him.
