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.
