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.
