Fresh out of prison, man dies in Davao drug bust

A MAN who was just released out of prison was killed on Tuesday evening after he engaged with a gunfight against the police who caught him selling illegal drugs.

Around 9:45 p.m. on Tuesday, the Special Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operation Task Force of San Pedro station in coordination with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (Pdea) conducted a buy-bust operation at Purok 4, Brgy 76-A, Bucana, Davao City.

But suspect Ricky dela Peña, a resident of the area, sensed something amiss and allegedly tried to shoot it out.

The Scene of the Crime Operatives (Soco) were able to recover a loaded revolver; sachets of suspected "shabu", and the "marked" money.

The collected illegal drugs has an estimated street value P95,000.

The cadaver of the suspect was then brought to Angel Funeral Homes for proper disposition.
