CAUAYAN CITY, Isabela—Two brothers suspected of stealing a car in Tuguegarao City were shot and killed by the police here on Thursday.

Half-brothers Michael Bariuan of Tuguegarao City and Mike Bentiero of Cauayan City died after clashing with arresting police officers, who intercepted them following the theft of a sports utility vehicle owned by an employee of Cagayan State University in Tuguegarao City, said Supt. Ariel Quilang, Cauayan police chief.

Bentiero, who occasionally uses the surname Bariuan like his brother, allegedly fled when their vehicle was stopped here, and supposedly fired at policemen who gave chase. He was killed when the police fired back.

Bariuan, who stayed in the stolen vehicle, supposedly grabbed the gun of a policeman, prompting another police officer to shoot and kill him.
