Police chief Sr. Inspector Ricky Boy Alemania Remoroza of Magsaysay in Davao del Sur was critically wounded during a drug operation at Sitio Upper Kasuga in this town on Wednesday morning.
Remoroza sustained gunshot wounds on his chest and stomach and was rushed to the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) in Davao City for immediate medical attention. He led his team to the house of one Caloy Calago, 28, who was asked to surrender after his name appeared to be in the drug watchlist.
However, Calago resisted and shot it out with authorities. This was when Remoroza forcibly opened the door, and was welcomed by bullets from the suspect’s .45-caliber pistol.
Calago then tried to escape from the chasing police operatives but was cornered and killed in another house.
He was sought by authorities to give up but instead threatened to shoot it out and explode a grenade if he will be arrested in his house. (PNA)
