From InterAksyon (Apr 17): Armed man shouting 'Allahu Akbar' shot dead at military camp's gate in Sulu
Initial reports reaching Manila said that a knife-wielding man who broke into a military camp in Sulu and tried to grab the rifle of a sentry was shot dead by another soldier before noon on Friday in Barangay Tagbak, Indanan, Sulu.
According to Colonel Alan Arrojado, commander of the Joint Task Group Sulu, the incident happened at around 11:45 a.m. at the Tagbak military detachment of the 5th Civil Military Operations Battalion of the 5th Infantry Division.
"Our military police and police investigators are still trying to identify the suspect," Arrojado told Interaksyon.com when asked for details. "Allegedly, the unidentified man surreptitiously entered the main gate of the camp carrying a knife while shouting 'Allahu Akbar (God is great)'," he added.
Arrojado said the suspect tried to grab the M-16 service rifle of a certain Sergeant Gelacio, triggering a scuffle.
During the commotion, a certain Sgt. Nieves, member of the designated quick response team, shot the suspect, killing him on the spot.
