Arrested drug suspect gunned down in Naga City
He was identified as Rafael Penera, of legal age, and a resident of Barangay Penafrancia, this city.
Police said that earlier this afternoon, Penera was flagged down by personnel conducting Oplan Sita for driving a motorcycle without a helmet. He was also found to have no registration papers and no license.
Furthermore, shabu paraphernalia and a piece of plastic containing a substance believed to be marijuana were found in his possession.
The suspect was being brought to the Isla Sison (Sagrada Familia) Police Outpost for verification when he tried to wrest the service firearm from the grasp of PO1 Joan Ancheta.
This prompted SPO1 Carlos Neola to come to her rescue and shoot the suspect.
The suspect was rushed to the Naga City Hospital in the same barangay, but was declared dead.
The scene is still being processed by the Scene of the Crime Operatives Crime Lab as of the time of this writing.
