On Wednesday night, a 17-year-old Grade 11 student was killed during an Oplan Galugad operation in Caloocan City

The victim was identified as Kian Loyd delos Santos who died after he was shot during a police operation in Barangay 160 in Caloocan City.



A report from GMA News stated that victim was spotted during the operation past 8 p.m. Police said he took off when he saw them approaching.

Police chased him but the victim allegedly drew a gun and fired at them, forcing them to fire back.

However, a relative of a victim said it was not true.

Randy delos Santos, the victim's uncle, said he asked bystanders what happened and was told that when one of the drug suspects saw the police coming, he passed on a packet of something (believed to be shabu) to the victim who - afraid of being caught with it in his possession - ran.

Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles reacted to this issue and even wrote an open letter addressed to the Philippine National Police. Cruz-Angeles said that these so-called wrong doings of the police officers might harm the President's reputation.



Check out her full open letter below:

Dear PNP:

Sa imbestigasyon, bawal ang tamad. Hindi nilalambat ang mga akusado. Pinatutunayan ang kanilang sala at pinakukulong ng hambambuhay. Hindi po "to whom it may concern" ang mga paratang ng ilegal na droga, ha.

Alam kong pinapanigan kayo parati ng pangulo. Syempre, lider sya ng buong sangay ng ehekutibo. At pinakikita nya na back-upan nya kayo para mataas morale ninyo. Mahirap nganaman sumugod sa kalaban kung alam mong pupukpukin ka lang ng kaso matapos nyo gawin ang trabaho ninyo.

PERO, wag nyo naman ipahamak ang pangulo.

Tuwing panis ang kaso ninyo, tuwing tamad kayo magimbestiga at mangalap ng ebidensya, si Pangulo ang napapahiya sa inyo. Parati nyang ina-announce na may kumpyansa sya sa intel, at sa regularity ng operations ninyo. Kaya pag palpak kayo, kami naasar.

Sa tutoo lang, you should deserve the President's trust. Hindi yung hindi na kayo nagiimbestiga. Pa-raid raid lang, na baka makalambat ng durugista.

Umayos kayo. Nakatingin kami. At kung dati yung kumpiyansa ng Pangulo ay kumpiyansa rin namin, hindi na ngayon. 

Nakapatay ang ilan sa inyo ng bata. Walang kwenta ang salaysay nila. Natunghayan sila ng ilang saksi. Sa kahulihan nyan, si Pangulo ang masisisi.
