Three robbers were killed after engaging police in a firefight in Manila's Quiapo district before dawn Saturday.

Manila police said the three motorcycle-riding suspects held up two women at the Quezon Boulevard Underpass near Quiapo, taking their mobile phones, IDs and other valuables, shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday.

Responding police accosted the suspects, but the robbers reportedly fired at the law enforcers, triggering a firefight.

All three suspects died on the spot. Their identities have yet to be established.

Police recovered a motorcycle without a plate number, and three pistols, including one home-made gun.
