PAOMBONG, Bulacan–A still unidentified robbery suspect was killed after he and his companion carted away the day’s sales in a convenience store in this town dawn Saturday, June 25.

Police Colonel Charlie Cabradilla, Bulacan police chief, said the unidentified suspect fired at responding policemen while he and his companion were about to leave the Alfa Mart Branch in Barangay (village) San Isidro 1.


Cabradilla said two unidentified armed suspects barged inside the store at about 3:10 a.m. and, at gunpoint, demanded the cash from the store’s drawer.

Sherlyn Lagman, a crew at the store, immediately reported the incident to the police using a police-store device robbery system.


After 3 minutes, responding police arrived at the store and a firefight ensued between the suspects and the cops.

One of the suspects managed to flee, leaving behind his companion who fired shots at responding policemen.

He died on the spot after the police retaliated and hit him.

Police are still looking for the other robber who managed to escape.
