“They entered the station armed with a firearm and crude weapons and asked officers on duty to surrender their weapons, but the officers resisted and started fighting back,” Kayole OCPD Ali Nuno said.

He said the Kayole divisional headquarters received a distress call from two on-duty officers and sent backup.

“When the gang discovered that the officers had backup, they tried to escape. The officers shot at the five, fatally injuring one and wounding another,” he said.

Police say one of the three suspects who escaped had gunshot wounds.
