A drug suspect who pulled out a grenade was killed while four others were arrested in a police raid in Quezon City Sunday.
Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Director Senior Supt. Guillermo Eleazar identified the slain suspect as Henry Cortes, 52, a resident of Barangay Holy Spirit.
The police said Cortes surrendered to the QCPD in September but he continued with his illegal drugs trade.
Eleazar said operatives of the Batasan Police Station under Supt. Lito Patay raided a drug den in Don Antonio Heights Subd. And found Cortes and four others sniffing shabu.
However, upon seeing the lawmen, Cortes pulled out a grenade but he was shot before he could pull the safety pin.
Arrested in the raid were Marites Romero, 54, Ambrocio Corpin, 38, Joseph Sacsilla, 34 and Jackelyn Dela Cruz, 29.
