Teenager Killed In Shoot Out With Policemen During Oplan Galugad; CCTV Footage Shows Different Story
Last Wednesday night, teenager Kian Loyd Delos Santos was killed during the One Time Big Time (Oplan Galugad) operation of the Philippine National Police in Brgy. 160 in Caloocan City.
According to the spot report of Caloocan Police, the Grade 11 student took a gunshot to his body, after he reportedly drew a firearm to gun down the coming police officers.
The police allegedly found two sachets of suspected shabu, a .45 caliber pistol, and four bullets on the 17-year-old Kian.
But the CCTV footage showed a different scenario of what truly went down.
In the video, two men in civilian clothes were seen dragging a young man to an unseen spot, while onlookers watched. A few minutes later, another man followed his companions.
According to one witness, she heard the men ordering the Kian to hold the gun. The teenager was bewildered and asked, “Anong pong gagawin ko dito?” That’s when the men said: “Iputok mo! Tapos tumakbo ka!”
One witness told ABS-CBN that she still saw Kian tearfully run for his life. Shortly thereafter, he was gunned down.
Kian’s father, Saldy Delos Santos, denied that his son is a drug addict. In fact, Kian dreamed of becoming a policeman someday. The teenager was also a good son, to which his neighbors could attest.
Saldy also questioned the policemen’s claim that his son had a gun on him during the shootout. If the cops knew Kian had a gun, they would have discovered it when they pat him down for weapons before dragging him away.
In another news report, the victim’s uncle, Randy Delos Santos, asked bystanders for their firsthand account. One of the drug suspects saw the policemen approaching, so he passed a packet to the victim. Afraid of getting caught, Kian also ran.
According to Chief Inspector Amor Cerillo, PCP7 commander, the teenager was believed to be the runner of a certain Neneng Escopino, a drug pusher on the police watch list. Kian, on the other hand, was not found on any list.
Netizens were enraged with what happened to the teenager. Here are some of the Facebook posts and reactions about the deadly drug operation.
