A PERSON of interest was arrested on Sunday morning in connection with the murder of Carlos Wong, who was chopped to death at Omai Landing, Essequibo River last Friday.

Wong, 45, was chopped to death during an alleged misunderstanding with two men over a water pump. After committing the act, the two men reportedly fled the scene.
Wong was taken to the Linden Hospital Complex, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
The other suspect is still at large.
