Two Suspected Robbers Killed In Gunfight In Quezon City
QUEZON CITY – Two alleged robbers were killed by authorities after engaging them in a gunfight in Quezon City on Thursday midnight.
Batasan Police chief Lieutenant Colonel Romulus Gadaoni said that the identities of two suspects were still unidentified. They were, however, alleged to be robbers, according to a report from ABS-CBN News.
The two suspects were reportedly among the six suspects behind a robbery in a restaurant at Barangay Batasan Hills at 11 PM on Wednesday evening.
Police were conducting Oplan Sita when the suspects aboard a motorcycle approached one of the checkpoints. The suspect attempted to flee from authorities, who then proceeded to chase the suspect.
This resulted in a gunfight between the police and the suspects and ended with the deaths of the latter.
The owner of the robbed restaurant was the one who identified the suspects. Retrieved from them were a bag filled with items stolen from the restaurant, and a motorcycle.
Based on the report, the victim was about to close her restaurant when two men approached the area.
They immediately stole P5,000 worth of cash and cellphone. When the victim attempted to fight back, she was struck by the suspect with the firearm.
The victim sustained a lump in her head and minor injures in her hand.
Gadaoni said that they will strengthen and fortify their checkpoints, Oplan Sita and Galugad in their area due to the recent robberies and motornapping.
They have yet to identify the slain robbers.
