Escaped prisoner in Antigua killed

By: Staff Reporter,

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - ONE day after the man who was on the lam from law enforcement in neighbouring Antigua and Barbuda was killed last evening (Feb. 9) as police sought to apprehend him.


    Shanell Thomas, a prison imate, was working on a Farm under supervision when he made good his escape from Prison Officers during lunchtime on Wednesday (Feb. 8). 


    According to a statement from the Antigua and Barbuda Police Force, Thomas was shot during an encounter with the lawmen.


    Police noted that they had responded to a report last evening that the escapee was spotted in the vicinity of Stables Night Club.


    While executing an operation to apprehend the escapee, officers reportedly identified themselves to him and ordered him to surrender.  


    During that time, however, police reported that he instead withdrew an object from his waist and advanced towards them.
    The police took defensive action and shot him. He was transported to the hospital where he was treated and later succumbed to his injuries.


    SKNVibes understands that the escape occurred, like in St. Kitts and Nevis, where there are a number of prisoners being taken to work and not many Prison Officers are present to oversee them.
