Tourist Shot Dead in Angeles
Street justice is a not uncommon occurrence in the Philippines. I hear most people promote it. Not just in the Philippines but in
Crooks, Automatic Weapons, Grenades!
When police started following a car full of suspected robbers they had no idea what was about to happen. The thugs noticed the police and “went berserk”.
The gang reportedly opened fire with automatic weapons and grenades. Two civilians were left dead. A car passing through was fired upon as the gang fired on everything. In the car, a man along with his seven year old daughter were killed. One police man was killed and three wounded. One policeman is in critical condition. Fifteen members of the gang were reported to have died.
Crime is high in Manila like other major cities but this type of shoot out is rare. It is likely the police were not expecting such strong resistance. It is believed two of the robbery gang got away.
