T&T Manhunt


Share post:

PORT OF SPAIN – Just days away from the 25th anniversary of the July 27, 1990 attempted coup, Port of Spain was thrown into panic and fear yesterday following a jailbreak and the deaths of a policeman and a prisoner.

A prison officer was also injured in the melee that followed the breakout from the Frederick Street prison and two armed and dangerous prisoners are on the loose.

The police presence in the capital and its environs was also ramped up considerably as a result, as officers conducted stop-and-search exercises all afternoon in an attempt to locate the escaped men.

Police Constable Sherman Maynard died of gunshot wounds at the Port of Spain General Hospital after being shot at following the jailbreak at the Port of Spain prison. (CMC/Express)

WANTED: Hassan Atwell (left) and Christopher Selby.
