A REBEL returnee was reportedly killed in a shootout with policemen inside a military Camp on Friday shortly after he allegedly stole a firearm and tried to escape in Juban, Sorsogon. Reports reaching the PNP National Operation Center in Camp Crame identified the slain rebel returnee as Rene Sambajon of Barangay Tabe in Gubat, Sorsogon. It said that Sambajon entered the bunker of Corporal (Cpl) David Soriano and took a .45 caliber pistol before proceeding to the barracks of Cpl. Lemuel Banta and Private First Class (PFC) Geman Fernandez, both of the Army’s 31st Infantry Battalion. He also took a bandolier and an R4A3 rifle. Upon his escape, Sambajon fired at PFC Reyniel Cataytay, then manning the gate, who returned fire killing the returnee.
