A 30-YEAR-OLD suspected drug pusher was killed Monday night, October 2, in a shootout with policemen in Barangay Tinaan, City of Naga.
Police led by Senior Police Officer 2 Lucermindo Banaylo were conducting a drug bust at 9:50 p.m. in Sitio Reclamation against Jenyo Semilla, 30.
A cop posing as a buyer just turned over P200 pesos to Semilla when the latter noticed that he was dealing with police.
After accepting the money, Semilla ran to the back of his house, got his .38 pistol and jumped at the back window.
When police noticed Semilla escaping, Banaylo and his operatives started chasing him. The suspect started shooting at them.
The police returned fire; hitting the suspect in different parts of his body.
Semilla was immediately brought to the Minglanilla District Hospital but he died before reaching the facility.
After the operation, police recovered Semilla’s pistol, four small packs of suspected "shabu" (methamphetamine hydrochloride) and P200 pesos.
