BAGUIO CITY: Another suspected drug-related killing took place here at dawn on Friday after two unidentified suspects gunned down Francis Ramos, said to be on police drug watch list, near a flower shop along Lower Magsaysay Avenue. Baguio City Police Officer-in-Charge and Senior Supt. Ramir Saculles said Ramos just came from a nearby bingo game and was tailed by the suspects who engaged him in a fistfight before the shooting. Ramos was facing theft and robbery and drug cases. Meanwhile, at least 22 suspects have been killed here with 18 shot dead by alleged assassins, including Ramos, and only four died in legitimate drug operations since July 2016.
