An alleged drug personality was killed and two of his cohorts were arrested in a sting operation along Makisig Street, Malinta, Valenzuela City on Saturday evening.

Police identified the slain suspect as Frederick Tizon, 42, resident at S. De Guzman Street, Panaoa, Valenzuela.
Arrested were Arvin Gutierrez, 47; and Ruben Gutierrez, 72; both caretakers and residents at Makisig Street, Malinta, Valenzuela.

Their other cohort, who police identified as Jason Andes, resident of Pinalagad, Malinta, Valenzuela, remains at-large.

Elements of the Valenzuela City Police Station Drug Enforcement Unit (VCPS-SDEU) and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency conducted the buy-bust at about 11 p.m.

Investigation showed that a poseur buyer bought a sachet of suspected shabu worth P200 from Arvin, who was with Tizon and Andes at the time.

The policeman then signaled to back up operatives to arrest the suspects.

But when Tizon noticed the approaching police and reportedly realized they were transacting with lawmen, he pulled out his firearm and engaged police in a shootout.

The police retaliated, hitting Tizon on different parts of his body. He was rushed to Valenzuela City Medical Center but was declared dead-on-arrival at about 11:25 p.m.
