MANILA – Two men were shot dead after allegedly robbing a policeman in Dasmariñas, Cavite on Tuesday.

The slain suspects allegedly attempted to get the motorcycle key of PO2 Francis Hernandez who was not in uniform while having a snack in Barangay Sampaloc III.

Supt. Carlos Barte, chief of Dasmariñas Police, said Hernandez then revealed that he was a cop, igniting a gunfight.

The two suspects were fatally shot.

Barte also confirmed that a bystander sustained a bullet wound after one of the suspects, whom authorities thought was already dead, still managed to fire a shot while lying on the ground. – report from Eric Dastas, dzMM
