CAMP GENERAL ALEJO SANTOS, Bulacan — A drug pusher was killed, while 21 other drug suspects were arrested in several operations launched by the Bulacan police on Wednesday and Thursday, midnight.

Col. Chito G. Bersaluna, Bulacan police chief, identified the fatality during the operation in San Jose Del Monte City as Arnel Moseños y Nillusgi.

Moseños reportedly shot it out with a police team after realizing than the supposed buyer was an undercover officer.

Three of 21 arrested suspects were minors.
