‘Drug pusher’ shot dead in Dalaguete

A SUSPECTED drug pusher was shot dead by an unidentified assailant in Sitio Guiwanon, Barangay Poblacion, Dalaguete, Cebu, at 1:10 a.m. Sunday, July 23.

Police identified the fatality as John Christopher Ereno, 26, who succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds in the body.

Investigation showed the victim came from a wake of his neighbor in Guiwanon. He was shot while he was walking toward his home.

Senior Police Officer 1 Job Sarvida said Ereno surrendered during Oplan Tokhang last December 8, admitting he was a pusher and promised not engage in illegal drug trade again.
