Sr. Supt. Eleazar Matta, Laguna Provincial Police Office chief, identified the suspect as Ali Basher Adiong, a resident of Happy Valley here.

Police said Adiong, who is also a high-value target, traded gunshots with a police team who set up the bust. He shot the officer who posed as a buyer, but the officer survived because he was wearing a bullet-proof vest.

Other members of the team, returned fire, hitting Adiong. He died later at a hospital.
