Escaped prisoner shot dead


Escaped prisoner Shanell Thomas was reportedly killed in a police operation last night.


Police said Thomas, 34, escaped the prison farm at Diamonds Estate at around midday on Tuesday.


They later described the fugitive as armed and dangerous after he evaded officers during an exchange of gunfire in New Winthorpes the following day.


According to a police release at the time, officers tried to apprehend him when they saw him in a car, but he emerged with what appeared to be a firearm and attempted to engage the officers.


According to reports, Thomas was shot and killed following another encounter with the security forces in Cassada Gardens Wednesday night.

    Rest in peace, my condolences to your family especially your mother. The man you became I never knew, you never showed me that side of you, you were always respectful, an intelligent human being with so much unfulfilled potential. You chose the road angels fear to tread, and that road lead you to your unfortunate demise.

  3. Real dunce . I hope this teach a very valuable lesson to those who decide to go against the system.
