Two policemen were killed in a shooting that took place outside Ever Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City and it appears to be a “misencounter” between operatives of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the personnel of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).
According to reports, it is said that the policemen who are members of the QCPD-District Special Operations Unit (DSOU) conducted an anti-illegal drug operation outside a fast food area.
Due to the shooting, traffic flow in that part of Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City was temporarily halted last Wednesday night.
The Ever Commonwealth leadership issued a statement and confirmed the shooting that allegedly took place outside the mall.
“We have secured all access to the mall so all shoppers are safe inside. Our priority right now is to ensure the safety of the employees and the public,” the statement reads.
“The management is closely coordinating with the PNP of the current situation. Please bear with us as we allow the authorities to handle the situation. For now, we hope for everyone’s cooperation to exercise caution in sharing unconfirmed information online. Thank you,” it continued.
