Corporal Alvin Borja of the Quezon City Police District-Special Operations Unit was singled out by the IAS (QCPD-DSOU). According to the report, witnesses told Borja to shoot a PDEA agent and informant.

Borja was charged with the murder of PDEA agent Rankin Gano by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in September. Because of the overwhelming evidence, only Borja and ten other officers were disciplined out of a total of 41 officers participating in the event, based on the report.

On February 24, 2021, four persons were reported slain when the PNP and PDEA opened fire on Commonwealth Ave. in a supposed anti-drug operation. The previous report said that four PDEA agents and a police officer were charged with homicide in the criminal case brought by the NBI.

Attempted homicide charges have been filed against nine persons. Several additional officers and PDEA agents were accused with direct assault, fabrication of official papers, robbery, and aiding or abetting evasion.
