Another Arrest in Last Week's Wounding of Phila. Officer
Philadelphia police have nabbed a second suspect in last Thursday’s shooting of police officer Kevin Livewell in the Kensington section of the city.
Officer Livewell was undergoing surgery over the weekend after being shot in the leg. His partner was able to arrest one man, but two others ran off.
KYW’s Jim Melwert reports that police say when officers tried to pull over a van in the 3000 block of North Water Street on Thursday evening, three heavily armed men opened fire (see previous story).
After the incident, police recovered a cache of eight high-powered weapons at the scene (see related story).
On Saturday evening, police announced that one of those being sought was 27-year-old Anel Cuenas (right). This morning it was announced that he had been captured around dawn.
In addition to the $10,000 reward for Cuenas, police say there’s a $5,000 reward for the name of the other suspect.
