An alleged big-time drug pusher who yielded 25 grams of suspected shabu worth P250,000 was shot dead in a buy-bust operation conducted by Tagbilaran City police in Barangay Booy.

The suspect, 25-year-old Edgar Sarmiento, a resident of Brgy. Mansasa, pulled out and shot his .38 caliber firearm at a police operative prompting the authorities to fire back, killing the alleged pusher.

According to police, Sarmiento drew and fired his weapon after suspecting that he sold drugs to a police poseur-buyer.

The undercover cop was able to purchase P500 worth of suspected shabu from Sarmiento, police said.
