With no known casualties or injuries on the part of the police officers, the incident resulted to the instant death of Salvador who is one of the three notorious drug pushers in the barangay, according to Punong Barangay Bert Muntad, One of the three has already left reportedly for Manila while the other is still around the village, Muntad further informed.

“I might have heard or overheard the name of Tamidles but I have no personal knowledge about his person or what he does and why he should be found and arrested by police officers in this vicinity because he is not from the Barangay. On the other hand, Omil Salvador is known to me as a fisherman but notably with an illegal activity around my village.” Muntad narrated.

Salvador’s mother informed that his son is a single parent of a seven-year-old boy whose mother (live-in partner of Salvador) left about five years ago. She further told that his son makes a living thru fishing and have no idea about the accusations of him being a user or pusher of illegal drugs. Furthermore, she recalls that Tamidles has been introduced to the family as friend sometime ago and have not seen him at their house nor in the company of her son since then.
