Police in Highland Park apprehended a possible murder suspect this afternoon after sealing off streets near Avenue 52 and Irvington Place. The Northeast Division’s Twitter feed at about 5 p.m. had advised residents to “stay away” from the area as officers set up a perimeter and brought in police dogs to assist in the search. But about 45 minutes later police notified residents that a suspect had been caught. It’s not clear if the suspect who was apprehended today was connected with Saturday night’s lethal shooting near Monte Vista Street and Avenue 53.
* Update: Police confirm that the person who was apprehended is a suspect in the Monte Vista Street killing.
