NAGA CITY (Bicol Standard) -- A case of Murder has been filed at the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office in Sorsogon against three persons tagged in the killing of PO1 Michael Monte Villalobos of the Irosin Municipal Police Station.

The suspects were identified as Noel Galido Fumera, Jose Marie Estiller, and Renante Millares Delos Santos.

In a report sent by the PNP Bicol to the Bicol Standard, it was narrated that Villalobos was treacherously gunned down by two suspects armed with a caliber .45 at Mike Motorcycle and Spare Parts located at San Pedro, Irosin, Sorsogon at past 4:00 p.m. on September 20, 2018.

The Regional Office added that prior to the incident, Fumera, who acted as the lookout, pointed the exact location and direction of the victim to the two gunmen, Estiller and Delos Santos.

The gunmen casually approached the victim and subsequently shoot the unwary cop and vehemently carted away the service pistol of the wounded cop who was sprawling helplessly on the roadside after he was shot.

PNP Bicol said it will exert extra effort for the immediate arrest of the suspects.
