Attempted murder suspect arrested in Hanover Park

A suspect, who was originally arrested for the possession of an unlicensed firearm, received an additional charge of attempted murder — after being identified as the individual who shot and wounded a 31-year-old woman in Hanover Park last night.

Mayco member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, said officers patrolling the area heard gunshots fired at about 23:00. “Officers then searched the area, and came across a group of men who started running away – one of them ditched a firearm.”

The officers apprehended the 30-year-old suspect, who carried three live rounds of ammunition, moments later.
