Brgy official killed on drug bust
A village official was killed in what the police claimed was a shootout past 11:40 p.m. on Sunday in Barangay Malapoc, Danao City, at least 48 km north of this city.
Amador Capin, barangay councilor of Guinacot in Danao, was gunned down in his house in Malapoc, Danao during a buy-bust operation conducted by the Danao City police, the Special Weapons and Tactics and the Regional Public Safety Battalion.
Cabin, who was on the drugs watchlist of the police, transacted with an undercover policeman who wanted to buy shabu from him, said PO3 Rosell Ocampo of Danao police.
When Capin noticed that the person he dealt with was a policeman, he immediately ran, got a gun tucked from his waist and fired at the operatives.
He did not hit anyone, Ocampo said.
Sensing that their lives were in danger, the operatives fired back. Capin was hit on the different parts of his body.
The police brought Capin to a hospital in Danao City but he was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.
Recovered from his possession were a .45 caliber pistol and 2.2 grams of shabu worth P25,960.
