#PERTH Northern Suburbs Park searched in search for wanted gunman

THERE is a hunt on in Perth’s northern suburbs this afternoon for Shawn Adam Newton, who is wanted by police over the death of a woman found in a car on the freeway on the weekend.

Newton is considered armed and dangerous and police have swamped the Karrinyup area in the search for him after a number of reported sightings over the past few days.

Speaking from Karrinyup, 7 News Perth’s Grant Taylor said police raced to the Trigg Bushland Reserve at about 3.30pm with lights and sirens flashing.

“They were brought here in a really hurry,” he said.

“It is understood there had been another sighting, not confirmed, here yesterday.”
