Two carnappers die in shootout with QC police
MANILA, Philippines – Two unidentified carnappers died after getting into a shootout with members of the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) at Samonte Road corner SB Road in Barangay Nagkaisahang Nayon, Quezon City, early Sunday morning.
It was past midnight when the suspects tried to steal a motorcycle, owned by Bayani Marasigan, with plate number WO-4746.
Marasigan said he had stopped to eat but even before he had alighted from the motorcycle, the suspects already approached him. One of the suspects dragged Marasigan away while the other took the motorcycle.
At around 1 a.m., members of the “Oplan Sita” police spotted the two men on the stolen motorcycle.
The two suspects opened fire, leading the police to fire back. The two men were eventually killed in the shootout.
A caliber .38 gun was recovered from the suspects. -- Reports from Eric Dastas, DZMM; Carolyn Bonquin, ABS-CBN News.
