The suspect in the assassination of a policeman in Barangay Camino Nuevo last year was killed during a shootout with police and military personnel in Sitio Baluno, Barangay Bunguiao this city yesterday morning.

The suspect was identified as Rosendo “Endo” Lorenzo.

Lorenzo has a pending warrant of arrest for murder in connection with the assassination of SPO3 Ronnie Adansa, a policeman formerly assigned at the Curuan Police Station.

Yesterday morning, joint police and military operatives swooped down in Sitio Baluno to serve the warrant to Lorenzo.

The suspect, however, resisted arrest and engaged lawmen in a shootout.

Lorenzo was killed in the firefight while his companion, identified as Mark Anthony Mambababae Deles, 30, of Camino Nuevo, was arrested.

Authorities recovered a 40 mm. grenade, a grenade launcher, three (3) sachets of suspected shabu, drug paraphernalia and an undetermined amount of money from the suspects.

Deles was turned over to the Sangali Police Station while the confiscated items were forwarded to the PNP Crime Laboratory.  (Dan Toribio)
