MANILA - A man helping police in anti-illegal drug operations was shot dead in Quezon City Monday morning.

The victim was identified as Antonio Baguinon who works as a barangay police safety officer.

According to SPO2 Mario Zamora, initial investigation revealed the gunman entered Baguion's house while two others served as lookouts.

He said the victim has been helping the police in executing "Oplan Tokhang" against illegal drug users and pushers in the area.
