The suspect was transacting with a police undercover agent, but sensed that it was a police set-up. He then drew his handgun and fired at the police agent, prompting other police operatives to retaliate and kill the suspect instantly.

Panganiban said the suspect was a former drug surrenderer and included in the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency drugs watch list. Mar S. Arguelles
