MAGUINDANAO --- Two drug traffickers who doubled as guns-for-hire were killed in a shootout with police agents in Datu Odin Sinsuat town in this province Sunday.

Adrian Amando and Anthony Balleque, who sustained gunshot wounds in different parts of their bodies, were declared dead on arrival by attending physicians at a hospital in nearby Cotabato City.

Brig. Gen. Marni Marcos of the Police Regional Office-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao said Monday the duo were to be entrapped in Barangay Upper Capiton in Datu Odin Sinsuat town but the operation went haywire when they noticed that they were to sell shabu to law enforcement agents disguised as drug dependents.

The team out to arrest them, led by Major Erwin Tabora of the Datu Odin Sinsuat police, was forced to neutralize them when they pulled out guns and opened fire.

Barangay officials confirmed to reporters Monday that Amando and Balleaque were large-scale peddlers of shabu who were both implicated in the murder of 11 people for a fee.

Tabora, in a report to Marcos, said they seized handguns and shabu from the suspects, whose cadavers had been turned over to their families.
