Two more armed suspected drug dealers were killed in a shoot out with operatives during a buy bust operation in Barangay San Pablo-Sta. Elena, Diversion Road in Hagonoy, Bulacan while nine other suspects were arrested in a series of operations on Thursday.
Acting Bulacan police director, Senior Supt. Romeo Caramat Jr., identified the slain suspects as Ronaldo Viray alias “Onad” and Reynaldo Cruz alias “Rey Ulo”, of Barangay Mercado in Hagonoy. Both are in the drug watch list of Hagonoy Police.
