The latest victim was Ricardo Enderez who died on Monday.

Reports reaching the office of Senior Supt. Johnny Almazan, Caloocan police head, said Enderez was attacked by two men on a motorcycle.

Police said Enderez was a suspected drug dealer in Caloocan City.

Twenty minutes before Enderez was slain, Jose Andrew Marie Tesorero was also shot dead inside his house by two men in bonnets.

Tesorero was also a suspected notorious drug pusher, police said.

Also on Monday, Alfredo Tablate was shot to death in his house. His killers were also wearing bonnets.

On the same day, Japhet Bacaltos was killed by two men.

Police said Bacaltos,37, was suspected to be involved in drug trafficking in the city.

Police also recorded the killing of Robert Joshua Capili and Glenn Sapolingan at around 1:50 a.m. on Monday.

The two were attacked by six armed men in three motorbikes.

On Sunday, two killing incidents in the city were recorded by the police.

The victims were Michael Mendoza and Adan King Gatdula.

Gatdula was killed inside his house by four men in bonnets.

Meanwhile, a man who had surrendered to authorities and promised to end his illegal drug activities was shot dead by policemen.

Police said Michael Paguia was shot dead because he engaged anti-drug operatives in a gun battle.

It appears Duterte found a solution to his overcrowded prison population.
