Prior to the encounter, the policemen were conducting anti-criminality operation and surveillance against the suspects at Biak na Bato Street at around 12:45 a.m. 

Law enforcers then spotted the suspects near a parked motorcycle and engaged them in a brief gunfight, leading to the death of the three.

The fourth suspect, identified as a certain Nonoy Hermosa, however, managed to escape using another motorcycle.

Recovered were three cal. 45 pistols, two pieces of magazine, one orange Honda Beat motorcycle, and one sachet of suspected shabu.

Police follow-up operation is now being conducted to arrest Hermosa. /jpv
