CEBU, Philippines — One of Talisay City’s most wanted persons was killed in an alleged shootout with operatives in Sitio Lawis, Barangay Maghaway yesterday dawn.

Jackson Bonghanoy Segundino, 35, was shot dead after he resisted arrest and fired at Talisay police officers.

Talisay City Police Station Chief Police Lt. Colonel Marlu Conag, who led the operation, said Segundino pulled out a gun and shot them, but missed.

The cops retaliated, hitting Segundino.

Segundino, fourth most wanted man in Talisay City, died on the spot at past 1 a.m.

Conag said they were serving the arrest warrant for multiple murder cases issued by Judge Lynna Adviento of the Regional Trial Court Branch 58 when the incident happened.

Police recovered a .38 caliber revolver loaded with a misfired bullet and three fired cartridges from the crime scene.

“He is a notorious gun-for-hire, and he is also involved in selling illegal drugs in the area of Talisay City,” Conag said.

Ex-danish soldier nabbed

In a separate operation, a 43-year-old retired Danish soldier was arrested for illegal possession of firearms amid the election gun ban.

Per Christian Thrane Neis was nabbed inside his residence in a subdivision in Barangay Pit-os, Cebu City Saturday dawn, resulting in the seizure of a serialized .45 caliber firearm, gun holsters, two handcuffs, and an airsoft gun.

The arrest was made by virtue of a search warrant issued by Regional Trial Court Branch 20 Judge Marlon Moneva. The operation was hatched by the operatives from the Cebu City Police Office Intelligence Branch and Talamban Police Station.

Neis is set to face charges for violating Republic Act 10591 or the Comprehensive Law on Firearms. (FREEMAN)
