Superintendent Cristopher Abrahano, chief of police here, said that former SP0-1 Vicente Moulic shot it out with police intelligence unit at 10:45 am today in Sitio Tambac Melag, Barangay Pantal here when one of operatives was discovered by Moulic to be a poseur-buyer.
Moulic remains sprawled prostrate after policemen shot him through his locked iron grilled door.
"Na consumate na iyong buy bust operation, effect na iyong arrest. May back up officer naka set na hulihin na siya. Binunot niya ang baril niya, pinutok doon sa poseour -buyer natin. Hinde tinamaan pero nakapag-retaliate tinamaan itong si Moulic, " explained by Superintendent Abrahano to reporters.
The handgun under the possession of the deceased was a 1911 model 9mm.
The suspected pusher was dismissed in early 2000s from the police service when he was discovered to be into dangerous drugs activities and was found positive with the illegal substance in his body.
Moulic was able to reverse through appeal at the national police office in Manila his dismissal from the service.
He however did not return back to the Philippine National Police upon the reversal of his dismissal.
"He chose to peddle illegal drug's shabu in Mangaldan and Dagupan," Abrahano said.
The chief of police cited the former peace officer was in the Drug Watch's lists of the police here and those in the Counter Intelligence Unit of the Provincial Police Office in Lingayen, Pangasinan
Moulic was living at Barangay Pantal East here with a common law (lived -in) wife and two of his children with his legal wife who left him.
The common law wife, according to the police, is languishing in jail for drug pushing, too.
"He was the lone drug peddler in the neighborhood," Abrahano referred to the deceased cop.
Moulic is the10th drug pusher killed in this city since President Rodrigo Duterto assumed office at noon of June 30
