A notorious man and a policeman were killed while another lawman and barangay kagawad were wounded in a shootout at Sitio Sapa Botong, Barangay Culasian, Sirawai, Zamboanga del Norte last Friday afternoon.

Supt. Roger Alabata, Police Regional Information Officer,  disclosed that Nasser Sandag, a kagawad was shot and wounded by Sait Indal around 2:30 p.m. He sustained a bullet wound in the right leg and was taken to a hospital and was later transferred to the Zamboanga City Medical Center.

Policemen conducted a hot pursuit operation at the house of the suspect and tried to convince him to surrender but he refused to yield and instead fired his improvised shotgun at the lawmen, killing PO2 Arilon Lim who was hit with pellets in the chest.

PO3 Ranielle Villarete was wounded while the suspect was killed by a police back-up team.

Recovered from the suspect was the  shotgun he used in firing at the policemen. – Dan Toribio
