Suspect caught after evading cops for two years

A 40-year-old man who was in hiding for over two years in connection with a shooting incident was finally caught during a sting operation on Tuesday.

Police said the suspect was held along the Brian Lara Promenade in Port of Spain by officers of the Port of  Spain Division.

The  exercise was supervised by Snr Sup Moore, Sup Ablack, Inspector Commissiong, Sgt Bharath, and Cpl  Arthur, among others.

The suspect was wanted in connection with an incident in which an armed attacker opened fire on a group of people, as well as other shooting offences.

He has since been handed over to officers from the Santa Cruz Police Station.

Investigations are continuing. 

More on this as it becomes available.
