Police encounter leads to suspect’s death

MANGALDAN–A man was shot dead in an armed encounter with the police at about 4:30 a.m. on June 20 in Brgy Navaluan, Mangaldan.

The police said the suspect, only known as “Artek” ignored a checkpoint set up by policemen implementing Oplan Sita and Oplan Rody.

Instead of slowing down, the suspect sped up and even opened fire on the policemen manning the checkpoint.

The policemen retaliated and shot the suspect, falling from his motorcycle. He was rushed to the Mapandan Community Hospital for medical treatment where he was declared dead on arrival. (Leonardo Micua)
