In a report, Col. Edwin Quilates, Batangas police chief, said the police operation happened around 1:40 p.m. Wednesday in Barangay Niyugan, Laurel, Batangas.

When the suspects realized they were dealing with undercover policemen, the suspects drove away onboard their car. They even shot at the operatives’ vehicle as they fled.

The police chased them until they reached Barangay Amuyong in Alfonso town, Cavite.

Quilates said it was then when the suspects began to shoot the policemen forcing the authorities to return fire.

Both suspects were hit and taken to the Tagaytay Medical Center but Ambion died.
