MANDAUE CITY - A policeman was injured after a drug suspect fired at police who were implementing a search warrant on Wednesday morning.

Policemen were supposed to serve the warrant on Elvin Del Mar Sison, allegedly the top 1 drug pusher on the list of Mandaue City Police Office Station 1, in his home in Barangay Ibabao-Estancia when he reportedly resisted and shot PO2 Ryan Gerosa.

Gerosa sustained a gunshot wound in his right thumb, but managed to shoot Sison. 
Chief Inspector Michael Angelo Beltran, Police Chief of MCPO Station 1, said they brought the suspect to the hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

The suspect's body will undergo autopsy to determine the number of gunshot wounds he sustained.
