MANILA, Philippines — Three New People’s Army (NPA) rebels were arrested for killing a policeman in a botched kidnapping in Agusan del Norte on Thursday.

Renato Caerlang, 34; his younger brother James, 18; and Riedel Cabello, 26, were arrested during a follow-up operation for the killing of Senior Police Officer 3 Reil Morgado, said Chief Superintendent Gilbert Gruz, director of the Police Regional Office 13.

The police confiscated from the NPA rebels the two motorcycles that they used in the attempted kidnapping of Morgado, said Cruz.

Morgado was the municipal executive senior police officer of the Santiago Police Station in Agusan del Norte.

When Morgado went outside his house at P-4 Barangay Jagupit in Santiago at around 8:30 p.m., the suspects shot him.

Morgado suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at the scene.
