Elements of Makati Police Station Intelligence Section (SIS) were conducting buy-bust operation for loose firearms against Ali Dino Ahamil, alias “Ali”, 45, of 82 Acacia St., Bgy. Cembo, when the latter drew his firearm and engaged lawmen in a shootout upon sensing that he was dealing with police officers.
Southern Police District (SPD) director Senior Supt. Eliseo Cruz said the incident happened at around 1:30 a.m. along the alley located at 8661 San Jose St., Bgy. Guadalupe Nuevo, Makati City.
Earlier at 11:20 p.m. Wednesday, operatives of Muntinlupa Police Station Drug Enforcement Unit (SDEU) conducted a buy-bust operation against a certain “Will Em”, an alleged notorious drug pusher, along PNP Site, Tramo, Bgy. Sucat.
SDEU head Chief Insp. Peter Aquino said the operation was conducted following a tip from their informant that the suspect was doing illegal drugs transaction in the area.
However, when the suspect sensed that he was dealing with police decoy, he pulled out a firearm and fired towards the lawmen but missed.
The lawmen returned fire and hit the suspect in the body that resulted in his instantaneous death. Recovered at the crime scene were eight plastic sachets of shabu, a cal. .38 revolver and several empty shells.
