Alonto Singkala Kamsa died of a gunshot wound in the chest after he was shot by policemen who raided his home. The suspect was about to be arrested by provincial and local cops led by Supt. Giusseppe Geralde when he drew a handgun and fired at the lawmen.

Senior Supt. Ferdinand Sifuentes, Davao del Norte police chief said Kamsa was on the list of top drug personalities in Asuncion. Together with his wife and their son, the slain suspect had surrendered in the government’s Oplan TokHang.

“But based on our monitoring, he went back to dealing drugs so we applied for a warrant to have him arrested. He, however, resisted by shooting one of our personnel who was fortunately saved from harm by the bullet-proof vest he wore,” Sifuentes told the Inquirer on the phone.
