Supt. Aldrin Gonzales, speaking for PRO-12, said joint elements of the Isulan municipal police and provincial drug enforcement unit were about to arrest Ambulodto during a drug buy-bust operation at about 8:50 p.m. but the suspect allegedly grabbed the 9-mm. pistol of one of the police officers and fired at the cops.
