A suspected drug pusher, who engaged lawmen in a shootout, was killed following a buy-bust operation before dawn yesterday in Parañaque City.
Acting Southern Police District director Senior Supt. Eliseo Cruz said the slain suspect, known only as alias “Boboy”, died on the spot from bullet wounds in the body while his cohort, identified only as Elmar, managed to escape on board a red motorcycle without license plate.
Earlier at around 2:30 a.m., elements of Parañaque Station Drug Enforcement Unit (SDEU) led by Chief Insp. Anthony Alising, were conducting a buy-bust operation against the suspects when Boboy pulled out a handgun upon sensing that he was dealing with an undercover cop.
An exchange of gunfire ensued until the suspect was hit in the body while his cohort fled on board their get away motorcycle.
Police recovered from the slain suspect two heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets containing shabu, a caliber .38 revolver and the P300 marked money.
Parañaque police chief Senior Supt. Victor Rosete ordered a masive manhunt against Elmar.
The slain suspect was brought to People’s Funeral for autopsy examination.
