MANILA, Philippines —  A barangay chairman and three other drug suspects were shot dead in Cavite and Samar on Wednesday.

Louie Nening, chairman of Barangay Bulao in San Jorge, Samar, allegedly pulled out his gun when he sensed he had sold shabu to undercover agents in Barangay Guindapunan.

Alvin Gregorio, 20, was standing in front of a store in Barangay Maliksi 1, Bacoor, Cavite at around 6:40 p.m.  when he was shot. His companions Bienvenido Dagasdas, 58, and Allan Skaggs, 43, were wounded and taken to the St. Dominic Hospital for treatment.

Rafael Jocas Catalan and Christian Paul Martin were standing along Tito Avenue in Barangay San Nicolas 2 also in Bacoor at about 9 p.m. when motorcycle-riding men arrived and opened fire.

Superintendent Christopher Olazo, Bacoor police chief, said the incidents could be due to the fighting between suppliers and sellers of shabu. He said the fatalities were on the drug watchlist.
