A man was killed in a shootout with policemen in Barangay Panubigan, this city last Friday night.

Killed was Almaden Jabari y Gaira, 30, married, of Panubigan.

Policemen and barangay tanods were conducting foot patrol around 6:30 p.m. when they spotted Jabari acting suspiciously.

The lawmen detected Jabari to be armed with handgun prompting them to call him. However, Jabari reportedly drew his gun and fired at the approaching policemen, who returned fire hitting Jabari in the body. He sustained a bullet wound in the body and died on the spot.

The body was brought to the Quiniput Hospital for post mortem examination.

Police did not say whether or not Jabari was a member of any lawless group. — Dan Toribio Jr.
