The Manila Police District (MPD) on Monday, December 16, honored a hero cop who was fatally shot during an armed encounter with robbery suspects at Blumentritt in Sta. Cruz last week.

Police Corporal Edgil Bombase sustained four gunshot wounds during the armed encounter. He was immediately rushed to a hospital, but was declared dead days after.

The Manila City government provided the hero cop’s bereaved family P300,000 worth of financial assistance.

“May your soul rest in peace and thank you for the ultimate sacrifice sir,” the MPD said in a statement.
