Three suspected were killed after they allegedly attacked authorities during a police buy-bust operation of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in Calaca, Batangas.

One of the victims was identified as Paolo Jhonnel Camantique, while authorities are still investigating the identity of the two other suspects.

According to the Camp Crame report, the combined elements of the Calaca Police, Dasmariñas City Police, and PDEA in Sitio Matala, Brgy. Cahil, Calaca, launched the operation at around 8:30 pm.

Authorities recovered three guns, marked money, and a Mitsubishi Montero with an AAP 4056 plate used in the transaction from the suspects.
