A suspected shooter with a grenade tattooed on his face has finally been arrested by police after spending three days on the run.

It is believed Turvey was shot during the major police operation and paramedics are working on him at the scene.
The manhunt was launched after Turvey allegedly fired a gun as police tried to arrest him at a property in Katandra West, northern Victoria, on Monday midday.
He then allegedly led police on a chase before the officers “lost control” of their car, causing the vehicle to overturn and lightly injuring two officers.
A massive manhunt has ended after police captured Stanley Turvey (pictured) who was on the run in New South Wales after injuring two police officers in Victoria.
Police arrived at a property in Katandra West, northern Victoria, at midday on Monday to intercept Turvey before he fired two shots into the air and fled.
Police say Turvey approached detectives with a gun when they arrived at a property in Katandra West, near Shepparton in northern Victoria, on Monday.
Officers challenged Turvey to drop his gun, but he allegedly fired one shot into the air before fleeing the property in a car.
Neighbor Dianne said Turvey was shirtless and screaming as he confronted police.
“All the police officers were crouched down with their weapons drawn,” she said. 9News.
“They kept telling him, ‘Put down your gun and put your hands behind your head.’
“And then he came back and he said, ‘I’m not going back to prison.’
Two officers pursued Turvey, but lost control of their vehicle on Creighton Road before it rolled.
The officers were taken to Goulburn Valley Health Hospital with minor injuries and have since been released.
Turvey then stopped at a random residence in Youanmite where he allegedly forced a man at gunpoint to drive him to Finley in New South Wales.
The man was not injured and was released when the two men arrived on scene.
Turvey regularly brags on social media about being part of an outlaw motorcycle gang.
In a video shared on Facebook, Turvey is seen holding a dog leash attached to a collar around a man’s neck.
He is seen holding a knife in his other hand as he shouts orders at the man, who is on all fours, and threatens to cut out his tongue.
When the man does not comply with Turvey’s commands, he is seen abruptly pulling on the leash.
In the video, Turvey allegedly threatened to cut out a man’s tongue as he forced him to eat from an animal bowl while he was leashed like a dog.

In another video shared on Facebook, Turvey is seen threatening a man, asking him to meet him in Shepparton for a shooting.
“Any time you want to try, come to Shepparton,” the post read.
“Bring whoever you want and whatever little cap gun you like, because if you don’t pull the trigger and kill me, I’ll crush you to death real f—- easily.”
Turvey claimed to be part of the Finks OMCG after sharing photos of the deceased biker gang leader, Brent Reker, on his Facebook page in February.
“He’s my big brother… Finks MC Australia is my club and my brother is my family,” Turvey wrote.
“I will give my life to support my brother and live a happy death.”
