Three persons including an alleged gun-for-hire leader tagged as one of the suspects in the killing of a police lawyer and a retired policeman were killed in a buy-bust operation in Antipolo City Monday night.

Robert Chavez, alias “Bong Chavez,” who had been tagged by police as the alleged leader of a hired killer syndicate operating in Region 3,4 and Metro Manila died as he and two other suspects reportedly engaged policemen in a gun battle outside Chavez’s house in Sitio Maagay 1 in Barangay Inarawan, in Antipolo City around 11:15 p.m.

Chavez’s alleged cohorts tried to escape as they continue to fire their guns towards the police, composed of joint anti-narcotics operatives of Region 4-A Police Office, Rizal Police Office and Antipolo City Police Office.

Chavez and a certain Dennis Aleonor, were found dead inside the compound of the former while one of the still unidentified suspects who was sporting a tattoo on his arm and wearing a black sando and black short pants was found near a creek.

Supt. Villaflor Bannawagan, chief of police here said Chavez, aside from his alleged involvement in gun-for-hire activities, was earlier tagged as one of the killers of lawyer policeman Supt. Ramy Tagnong, and retired policeman turned barangay chairman candidate Rodolfo Lico.

The police operation also resulted in the seizure of P680,000 worth of suspected shabu placed in a plastic bag; a .45, two pieces of .38 and .22 caliber guns and several ammunitions; P1,000 cash, and several motorcycles, all found in the premises reportedly owned by Chavez in Sitio Maagay, Inarawan, this city.

Police said Chavez had been the target of weeks of surveillance operation since the gun-for-hire leader was tagged as one of the culprits in the killing of Supt. Tagnong on May 4, and Retired PO2 Lico on May 19, this year.
