Fugitive killed, 2 cops hurt


A fugitive facing murder charges died, yesterday, while two policemen were injured, a in shootout in Sitio Indangawan, Brgy. Manlocahoc, Sipalay City, Negros Occidental.

The wanted person identified by the Sipalay police as Emerson Antipaso, was declared dead on arrival at the Sipalay City hospital, the Sipalay police said.

Antipaso, who is facing murder charges, resisted arrest, when a seven-man team of the Sipalay police, led by PO3 Joy Fabera, served the arrest warrant to him.

The fugitive, who was armed with a homemade shotgun, shot Fabera and PO2 Armando Arsenal. This prompted the Sipalay police to return fire, causing his death the police said.

Fabera, who was hit in the left side of his chest, is now being treated for his injuries at a private hospital in Bacolod City, while Arsenal, whose injury was minor, is now back to duty at the Sipalay City Police Station.

Chief Inspector Romeo Vargas, former Sipalay City police chief, yesterday described Antipaso as an “armed and dangerous” person, who ranked number one in the Sipalay City police most-wanted list of fugitives.

Fabera was reported in a stable condition yesterday.*GPB
