Policemen shot and killed a man who ran amok by firing an M14 rifle inside the Jolo Police Station in Marina Street, Barangay Walled City, Jolo, Sulu before noon Sunday.

Sulu Joint Task Group commander Brig. Gen. Alan Arojado disclosed that the gunman broke into the police station around 11:25 a.m. and fired indiscriminately at policemen who returned fire killing him.

Police later learned the name of the gunman as a certain Lary, an alleged illegal gambling operator  in Jolo.

No one was hit among the policemen, Arojado said.

The body was brought to a funeral parlor for post mortem examination while the M14 rifle was turned over to the investigator for proper disposition. – Dan Toribio Jr.
