Police swooped down on the hideout of Jerry Causapin, an alleged bigtime drug pusher. Instead of peacefully surrendering, Causapin reportedly shot at the lawmen. A firefight erupted and Causapin died on the spot.

Senior Supt. Rhoderick Armamento, Quezon police director, said the operation was supposed to be a buy-bust. “But when we learned that the target has long been wanted for drug pushing, the team decided to arrest him but he resisted and fought back,” he said.

Police said the suspect had a standing warrant of arrest issued by the Regional Trial Court in Lucena City on drug charges. He was on the police drug watch list as a major supplier of shabu in Cotta and nearby areas.
