On the heels of a third person being arraigned for the murder of America Street money changer; Shawn Nurse, the alleged shooter was on Thursday arrested by Police, moments after being released from the Camp Street Prison.
The suspect was reportedly incarcerated for the past three weeks on a wounding charge. However, after being re-appreheneded, he is being questioned regarding Nurse’s murder.
According to a Police source, detectives received information from eyewitnesses who identified the suspect as the shooter.
It was previously reported that Nurse, of Lot 33 Shopping Plaza, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, was sitting in a chair at the corner of Avenue of the Republic and America Street on February 4, 2018, when he was approached by a man armed with a handgun.
The man demanded that the money changer hand over a bag containing an undisclosed sum of local and foreign currencies.
However, when the businessman refused, the bandit became angered and shot Nurse once to his head resulting in him dying immediately.
The Police retrieved a spent 9mm shell at the scene, and questioned several persons, who gave a description of the shooter.
At the time of the shooting incident, the suspect was reportedly clad in a red hoodie and a pair of brown trousers.
On May 10, Kacey Heliger, of Lot 42 Shell Road, Kitty, was charged with the murder of the money- changer.
Two other men, Kerwin DaSantos and George Hope, both 22 years old, have also been charged with his murder.
