MANILA – An unidentified gunman was killed in a shootout with police on Friday night in Paranaque City.

The man who was driving a black Montero with plate number UZI 388 engaged policemen in a car chase for about 30 minutes.

Police said they responded to a call regarding a shooting incident along Aguirre Street in BF Paranaque.

"Biglang sumibat, kaya hinabol ng mga pulis yan tapos nagpaputok sa amin," said Police Supt. Teofilo Andrada.

Police shot at the SUV's tires to slow it down but to no avail. It was finally cornered along El Grande Avenue in Las Pinas City.

However, five other vehicles were damaged during the chase.

"Paano na kaya ang gagawin ko? Patay na pala yung bumangga sa kotse ko," said Ric, whose car was damaged during the car chase.

Authorities are still determining the identity of the suspect and his possible connection with other notorious criminal groups. Report from Francis Faulve, ABS-CBN News
