Two armed men who avoided a police check point were killed after they fired at policemen in Tandang Sora, Quezon City early Friday.
Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Director Senior Supt. Guillermo Eleazar said the policemen were conducting “Oplan Sita” when they spotted the two men who were on a motorcycle with no license plate.
The unidentified men were told to stop but they sped off. Police operatives who gave chase cornered the duo along Congressional Avenue Extension. They fired at the operatives, who retaliated.
The two men were rushed to the Quezon City General Hospital but were declared dead on arrival by Dr. Joseph Bernard Lo who discovered three plastic sachets of suspected shabu from one of the men’s pockets.
Police also recovered guns and bullets.
