(CMR) A 28-year-old man of West Bay was arrested on Thursday, 3 August, in relation to a murder that took place off West Bay Road, George Town, almost seven years ago, on 1 October 2016.
That West Bay man was arrested on suspicion of accessory after the fact of murder, as he is believed to have misled the police throughout the course of the investigation, where then 24-year-old Justin Manderson was shot at the front of a shopping plaza located on West Bay Road. Manderson was transported to the George Town Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
The West Bay man has since been bailed pending further investigations into the incident. Police said this matter has been open and active over the years.
