CAMP OLIVAS, City of Fernando, Pampanga – An wanted man was killed while a suspect was arrested for illegal possession of firearms and ammunition on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2022, in separate police operations in Bulacan.

In a report to PRO3 (Police Regional Office 3) Director Brig. Gen. Cesar R. Pasiwen, Bulacan Police Commander Col. Relly Arnedo said a suspect was killed in an armed encounter while being served by members of the Bulacan CIDG (Criminal Investigation and Detection Group) and the Malolos City Police of an arrest warrant for slight physical injuries.

The suspect fired shots while trying to escape from the approaching cops, prompting them to retaliate, resulting in his death.

In Barangay Paco, San Rafael, Bulacan, a 65-year-old suspect was arrested by joint operatives of the Bulacan CIDG, the San Rafael Police, and the SWAT Team from Bulacan 1st PMFC, for violation of R.A.10591 or illegal possession of firearms during the serving of warrant.

The CIDG’s “Oplan Paglalansag Omega”, the campaign against loose firearms, seized a .22 rifle, a .38 revolver, a 12-gauge shotgun, gun magazines, ammunition, and holsters or holders.
