A 66-year-old Moruga man was yesterday arrested in connection with the shooting of two-year-old Candy Loubon.

The suspect was detained in Penal by officers of the Southern Division Task Force.

Candy is warded at the San Fernando General Hospital with slugs from a 12- gauge cartridge that struck her in the neck and leg lodged in her body.

The slug in her neck is close to her spine and doctors have decided not to operate immediately so as to avoid permanent damage to her nervous system.
