An alleged notorious drug pusher operating in the east coast,  who was wanted by the law,  was killed in a shootout after he resisted police arrest in Barangay Mercedes last Monday night.

City Police Director Sr. Supt. Edwin De Ocampo identified the fatality as Al Ahid y Bairula alias Rambo, married, of Talabaan.

A police report disclosed that before the shootout,  men of the Culianan Police Station and intelligence operatives of the Philippine Air Force were conducting surveillance on Ahid who had a standing warrant of arrest for violation of Section 5, Article II of the Republic Act 9165

The report said that the lawmen had earlier received an information that Ahid was in Talabaan delivering shabu to some pushers.

Around 6 p.m., Ahid was spotted by lawmen aboard a motorcycle heading for the city proper.

Police said that Ahid passed through the police checkpoint near the entrance of Camp Abendan prompting them to chase him.

Policemen tried to serve the warrant but Ahid resisted and fired at them while they were on motion. The lawmen returned fire hitting Ahid in the body. He was rushed to the hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival.

Recovered from Ahid’s possession was a .38 cal. revolver and a motorcycle.

Ahid was allegedly involved in shabu trade in the east coast. — Dan Toribio Jr.
