TWO suspected robbers were shot dead in an encounter in Quezon City on Wednesday night.

The two were on board their motorcycles when they reached a checkpoint along Scout Tobias Street, Roces Avenue at 8:48 p.m.

An initial police report showed that the suspects were allegedly involved in a robbery at Famous Kitchen along Tomas Morato just a few minutes before they were killed during a firefight with operatives of Kamuning Police Station (Station 10) in Barangay Paligsahan.

Quezon City Police District (QCPD) chief Joselito Esquivel said the suspects remained unidentified.
