FOUR men involved in illegal drug trade on Tuesday and yesterday were killed in separate buy-bust operations in Cabuyao City and Calamba City in Laguna.
Killed in Cabuyao was Ever Barcenas of Purok 1, Bgy. Marinig.
Barcenas sensed he was dealing with lawmen and pulled out a gun and fired at the police-poseur but missed.
The officer retaliated killing him on the spot.
Recovered from the slain suspect was one cal. .38 revolver, five heat- sealed transparent plastic sachets of shabu and the P500 buy-bust money.
Slain in an encounter with the police in Calamba were Joselito Odpaga Jr., Jesus Tenido, 49, and alias “Long Hair.”
