In Pangasinan, police said Usang Reyes of a gun-for-hire syndicate that is also involved in extortion drew his gun when he sensed he had dealt with undercover operatives during an entrapment in Barangay Nacasayan in Urdaneta City. His companion Eric Serain was arrested.
In La Union, three suspected members of a gunrunning syndicate – Army reservist Rogelio Regacho Jr., 33; Ronnel Laroco, 29, and Benson Aquino, 26, – were arrested in a sting in Barangay San Pablo in Balaoan, La Union on April 9.
Three guns and ammunition were recovered from the suspects.  
Motorcycle-riding men killed Virgilio Velasco, 35, in Hagonoy, Bulacan April 7.

One of the riders pulled out a gun and shot Velasco, killing him at the scene, according to Senior Supt. Romeo Caramat Jr., acting Bulacan police director.

An alias Enteng and a man known only as Noli allegedly fired at anti-drug operatives in Barangay Mabolo in Malolos April 9.
Police said three .38-caliber revolvers, an improvised shotgun, sachets of shabu, drug paraphernalia and marked money were recovered from the fatalities, who were known drug pushers in their barangays.
Ralph Tabbu, 56, was walking in Barangay Pulong Buhangin in Sta. Maria when he was shot on Thursday night. He allegedly yielded four sachets of shabu. – Ric Sapnu, Raymund Catindig, Eva Visperas and Jun Elias
