MANILA -- A man was killed in a shootout in Galas, Quezon City around 6 p.m. on Sunday.

According to Supt. Victor Pagulayan of Quezon City Police District Station 11, the man was riding a motorcycle with a woman when the police stopped them near Welcome Rotonda since the vehicle didn't have a license plate.

However, instead of stopping, the man took out his gun and sped off.

The police went after the suspects until they were cornered near Nayon Street in Brgy. San Isidro, where the man fired at the police. A firefight ensued.

The suspect's female companion fled from the scene. -- report from Henry Atuelan, DZMM
