Patay ang pinaghihinalaang lider ng notorious Tiatco Organized Crime Group na sangkot sa carjacking at hold-up activities sa Metro Manila at mga kalapit na probinsya sa isang police operation noong Abril 13 bandang 8:45 a.m. sa Tondo, Manila.
Nakilala ang natigok na suspek na si Rommel Tiatco nang mauna umano itong magpaputok sa mga pulis na maghahain sana ng kanyang warrant of arrest na inisyu ni Judge Marivic Balisi Umali ng RTC Br. 20, Manila dahil sa kasong pagpatay kay MPD PSSg Dranreb Cipriano.
Naitakbo pa sa Gat Andres Bonifacio Memorial Medical Center Hospital ang suspek ngunit dineklara nang dead on arrival.
“Follow-up operations are now underway against other members of the group to once and for all stop their criminal activities,” sinabi ni PNP Chief, Police General Debold M. Sinas.
