A 20-year old suspected drug pusher was killed in a buy-bust operation in Zamboanga Sibugay, police said Sunday.
Police Regional Office 9 (PRO) identified the slain suspect as Ken Adrian Banda, who allegedly sold to poseur buyer four small sachets of suspected shabu during the anti-drug operation Saturday, July 27, 9:00 pm at Barangay Mabini in Malangas.
After the transaction took place, the suspect allegedly noticed the presence of the policemen and immediately fired upon the operative using caliber 38 revolver.
This prompted the cops to return fire, which resulted to the wounding of Banda, who was declared dead on arrival in a hospital.
Recovered from the suspect were the gun loaded with four pieces of live ammunition and suspected shabu.
