The police said that all information leading to his arrest will be treated with strict confidence.

The police had previously stated that Wright’s alleged assailant was also under suspicion for a matter where a private security service’s guard’s gun was stolen from him on January 23.

Ashanti Sankar, 25, who witnessed the shooting, had said that she was instructed by Wright’s girlfriend, Lisa Adams, to tell the other man that she was not at home. She added that when she went down the stairs she heard Wright and the man arguing.
