Angolin, a resident of Barangay Pagatin, Datu Salibo, Maguindanao, used a home-made 12-gauge shotgun in firing at arresting officers following an illegal drug buy bust operation, Supiter said.

Angolin, who was in the police list of persons engaged in the illegal drug trade, had in his possession a fragmentation grenade, three sachets of shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) and shotgun ammunition.

He sustained multiple gunshot wounds and died on the spot.

Dozens of drug pushing suspects and drug users have been showing up at police stations, vowing to reform and undergo rehabilitation in Sultan Kudarat, following a virtual declaration of war by President-elect Rodrigo Duterte on drug traffickers and drug pushers.  SFM
