CAMP MACABULOS, Tarlac City -- A drug pusher believed to be responsible in the killing of a 16-year-old boy was killed in a firefight between the suspect and the local policemen in Barangay Paraiso recently.
Senior Superintendent Ritchie Posadas, Tarlac police provincial director, said Jerwin Anunsencio, a resident of said barangay drew his gun when he noticed that he was dealing with a police officer.
The suspect was hit during the shootout and died on the spot, Posadas said.
Police recovered from the suspect two sachets of methamphetamhine hydrochloride, locally known as “shabu,” caliber .38 revolver and P500 marked money.
Posadas said Anunsensio is the prime suspect in the murder of Jovy Macaspac, 16, last June 21, 2018. (Ric Sapnu)
