SHOCKING: The suspects were about to dump a corpse wrapped in packaging tape when they ran into a checkpoint!
3 suspects killed in a recent shootout with the police when they refused to stop their vehicles in a checkpoint. Instead of stopping the suspects rush through triggering a pursuit from the police. The runaway suspects opened fire and at pursuing police officers said in a GMA News article.
According to Las Piñas City police chief Sr. Supt. Jemar Modequillo, the suspects were on an AUV and instead of stopping at a police checkpoint at the corner of Real Street and Naga Street, they roared through.
Authorities found a corpse whose face and hands are wrapped in packaging tape along with a .38 caliber and a 9mm pistol, and a shotgun. Some two packets of shabu were also found on the body, and a sign which identified the victim as a drug dealer was also found.
Police officers gave chase even as the suspects opened fire on them. The gunmen were finally stopped and killed at the Barangay Pulang Lupa Uno-section of the C5 Extension.
Modequillo speculated that the suspects were the one doing summary-executions but got caught when they ran into a checkpoint in their way to dump the body.
