A suspect believed to be responsible for the shooting carried out last night in Maspotha on Kurunegala-Puttalam road has been arrested.

Police said that two weapons were found to be in the suspect’s possession at the time of arrest, one of which was discovered in the vehicle used by the gunmen at the time of the shooting.

Initial investigations revealed that a man inside the vehicle had shot the police officers while they attempted to check the vehicle. 

Police had made their way to check the vehicle following a tip-off that there was a vehicle with a forged number plate parked near a hotel in the area.

A 59-year-old sub inspector died after being admitted to hospital.  The two injured constables are receiving treatment in the ICU of Kurunegala hospital.

Meanwhile, the owner of the vehicle in which the gunmen arrived to commit the crime, has identified his vehicle.
