A five-month-old baby was killed in Tubod, Lanao del Norte on Monday.
Based on a report, police were about to serve warrant of arrest for frustrated murder against a certain Bevinido “Junjun” Laride at 4:00 a.m. at Purok 6, Barangay Taguranao.
Laride allegedly fired several times at the approaching SWAT team using an M2 carbine rifle.
The lead scout, PO1 Yasser Macatber, was wounded in the shooting, prompting the troops to fire back, resulting in the death of Laride’s wife, Virginia Delibo, and their baby were hit by bullets while sleeping and died on the spot.
Recovered from the crime scene were the M2 carbine rifle with one steel magazine loaded with seven cartridges, eight fired cartridge cases, and a .22 rifle.
