More information is coming out about the suspect in the shootout with police Tuesday near a daycare in Wilkes-Barre.
Newswatch 16 has learned it is not the first time the man has been in trouble with the law.
Tuesday police said suspect Otha Derrick Green was from Philadelphia. Newswatch 16 learned Wednesday that he was living in Scranton until two months ago, and he has been arrested close to a half-dozen times over the last decade.
Police said Green was walking along North Washington Street in Wilkes-Barre about 10 a.m. with a handgun.
When police ordered him to drop his weapon he refused, and a shootout ensued. Dozens of bullets went flying in broad daylight, right outside a day care center.
The wild scene lasted up to two minutes, and when it was over, Green was shot at least once in the chest, and taken to the hospital.
