Captain Jocyviel Zamora, Malalag police station chief, identified the slain drug suspect as Genesis Alegado Ladiza, 42, of Digos City, who sold some P10,000 worth of meth to an undercover agent in Bolton village.

As the transaction was consummated and the operatives moved in for the arrest, Ladiza allegedly drew a handgun, fired at but missed the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) agent, who served as poseur-buyer.
