Five drug suspects were killed while another was seriously wounded in a firefight with Quezon City Police District (QCPD) operatives Monday.
QCPD Acting District Director Sr. Supt. Guillermo Eleazar said the clash occurred at Payatas where law enforcers conducted a buy bust operation against the suspects.
Eleazar said the suspects sensed the presence of the police and fired, forcing the law enforcers to retaliate.
The police recovered four pistols, rounds of ammunition and two plastic sachets of shabu.
Eleazar commended the operatives for the operation and reiterated his call on drug suspects to peacefully surrender to the police.
