Bugasan Sur, Matanog, Maguindanao on June 16, 2022.
PCOL CHRISTOPHER W PANAPAN, Provincial Director, Maguindanao Police Provincial Office, identified the suspects as Norodin Guiamad, 35-40 years old, male, married, with warrant of arrest for the crime of Frustrated Murder issued by the Presiding Judge of Branch Regional Trial Court- 27, Hall of Justice, ORG Compound, Cotabato City; and Puti Sumanday, 35-40 years old, male, single, both resident of Sitio Pindulonan Brgy.

Reports from Matanog MPS disclosed that through an intel-driven operation, the operatives were able to locate the suspect's hideout. While operatives were approaching to serve the warrant of arrest, the accused and his group fired upon the operating troops using an M16 rifle and a Caliber.45 pistol which prompted the operatives to retaliate resulting to a headshot and body shot injuries of the accused and his aforementioned cohort that caused their death while the others were able to escape.
Confiscated during the operation were one (1) M16 rifle and one (1) Caliber.45 pistol that are now in the custody of Matanog MPS for documentation and appropriate disposition, while the cadavers were claimed by the Barangay Local Government Unit for Muslim Burial Rights.
