Policemen were on a combat operation at around 4 a.m. in Barangay Tambo of the said town when they chanced upon the members of the crime group, which led to a running gun battle where Saysay was left behind and later died during the encounter.

Earlier on Tuesday, another member of the CCG identified only as “Leo” voluntarily surrendered to the police.
