An alleged drug suspect was killed by the police early dawn Monday after a buy-bust operation that led to a shootout.
Suspect Reynaldo Alayon was killed after a drug bust around 1:30 a.m. in Barangay 4, San Francisco, Agusan del Sur, wherein Alayon allegedly sold to an undercover policeman a sachet of suspected shabu (crystal meth), according to a police report.
Authorities said Alayon, 38, a native of Barangay San Vicente, Butuan City opened fire after sensing his buyer was a police officer, prompting law enforcers to shoot him.
No one was hurt from the agents, said the report.
Recovered from the scene were a .38 caliber revolver, three spent shells, three live bullets and six sachets of suspected shabu worth P47, 200.
Also found from his possession were a P500 bill marked money, cellphone and drug paraphernalia. By CLC
