Ex-convict Raoul Thomas Moat, who is wanted by the police for shooting one man dead, seriously wounding his former partner, and later shooting a police officer in an unprovoked attack, is still on the loose.
Police suspect that the crazed gunman is still in the Tyneside area and have asked the public not to approach him, as he is known to be armed, and could just be a little bit dangerous.
Sources say that Moat is unlikely to give up without a fight, despite police appeals for him to turn himself in. Which makes this Skoob News reporter feel more than a little concerned.
Apparently, Moat holds a serious grudge against the police because he has got it into his head that his former partner - who he shot - was knocking off a policeman, while Moat was in Durham Jail. And he didn't much care for that.
Despite living a long way away from the crime scenes in the North East, this reporter is a little concerned. What if he has a car, and he's driven south? Is it safe to pop up the shops for a paper and a carton of milk? It's all well and good the police advising the public not to approach him, but what if he approaches me?
This reporter is going to lock all the doors and windows and go back to bed until they catch him.
It'll all end in tears.
More as we get it.
