LEGAZPI CITY, Philippines – At least two suspected drug pushers were killed in a Thursday drug buy-bust operation in Sorsogon City, police said Friday.

In a report, Superintendent Nonito Marquez, public information officer of Sorsogon police, said after the drug transaction with police operatives in Sitio San Lorenzo in barangay Bibincahan at around 9 p.m., the unidentified back rider recognized the identity of the police poseur buyer and immediately drew a hand grenade. This prompted the policeman to draw his own pistol and shoot the back rider.

The driver, known only as “Jepoy,” also drew a caliber .38 revolver, prompting police to fire at him. Jepoy was killed instantly. Remains of the two suspects were subjected to autopsy as part of the investigation, the report said.




Recovered in the area were one hand grenade, a caliber .38 revolver, three spent bullets from a 9mm, eight heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets of suspected “shabu” and a five hundred-peso bill. IDL
