Quick-responding Quezon City policemen arrested a fellow cop assigned in Manila for the fatal shooting of a traffic enforcer along EDSA before dawn of Thursday.

The victim, Edgar Follero, a member of the Quezon City Department of Public Order and Safety, was aboard a motorcycle when allegedly shot by P/Lt. Felixberto Rapana Tiquil of the Manila Police District anti-carnapping unit.

Despite being wounded, Follero was able to continue driving his motorcycle until he was able to seek help from Quezon City cops stationed along EDSA corner Roosevelt Avenue.
