SUSPECTED members of vigilante group “Caloocan Death Squad” (CDS) blasted the head of a 44-year-old housewife, who was allegedly involved in illegal drugs trade, while a helper about to score a sachet of shabu was killed Monday night in Caloocan City.
Meanwhile, members of the Deadly Death Squad (DDS) shot dead two men allegedly into illegal drugs trade in Las Piñas and Pasay cities.
Cecilia Sumile, of 4703 Saging St., San Vicente Ferrer, Bgy. 178, Caloocan City, died on the spot from bullet wounds in the head and neck after two alleged CDS members wearing bonnets and face masks shot her at close range.
After the killing, the suspects immediately boarded a motorcycle without plate number and sped away.
Caloocan police deputy chief for administration Supt. Ferdie del Rosario said Sumile was feeding a cat outside her house at 9:40 p.m. when her assailants appeared from behind and shot her repeatedly in the head.
Elements of the Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) recovered at the crime scene two empty shells for cal. .9mm pistol and an empty shell and a slug for cal. .45 pistol which will be submitted to PNP Crime Laboratory for ballistic examination.
Caloocan police homicide investigator PO3 Rommel Caburog said Sumile was included in the watchlist of drug personalities in their barangay and was subjected to Oplan: Tokhang last week by authorities.
In Bgy. 177, Charlie Quiroben, of Bgy. Tangke, was walking along Ilang-Ilang Street at 9:30 p.m. allegedly to buy shabu when riding-in-tandem suspects, both wearing bonnets and face masks, stopped in front of him.
The back rider pulled out a cal. .45 pistol and shot him in the head pointblank, killing him on the spot.
In Las Piñas City, members of the DDS shot dead Marcelo Salvador Jr., a tricycle driver, at the corner of Apitong and Acacia Sts., Bgy. Pamplona 3.
Police said the incident took place at 10 p.m. Monday while Salvador was buying something in a sari-sari store.
Witnesses told police that one of the riding-in-tandem suspects approached the victim from behind and shot him at close range.
They added that Salvador, though wounded, managed to run away but fell down after a few meters while the suspects escaped.
Betchie, wife of Salvador, admitted that her husband was a drug user but said he had quit using it.
In Pasay, Joshua Brusili, alias Dodong, 25, of Tramo St., was found sprawled on the sidewalk near Andres Bonifacio Elementary School on Leveriza Street at 4 a.m. Tuesday. Brusili bore a bullet wound in the head.
Police said Brusili was a notorious member of the “Akyat-Bahay Gang” and usually raped his victims after robbing them.
Police recovered an empty shell for cal. 9mm pistol at the scene. With Hannah Rhocellhynnia Cruz (OJT)
