Eloise Dixon, who was born in Dartford, was shot on August 6 after accidentally driving into a slum while visiting the south American country with her family.

He was arrested following a raid there on Saturday, which led to the seizure of two guns and cocaine. Three other men were also arrested.

The first alleged gunman was arrested on August 12 during a police raid in a nearby shanty town. Jackson Lima Ferreira was injured during a police shootout during the raid, according to The Mirror. 

A third man associated with the gang who carried out the shooting handed himself in a few days ago and the fourth has not yet been found.

Mrs Dixon, who went to Northfleet School for Girls, suffered gun shot wounds to the stomach in front of her husband and three daughters.

She is said to be recovering.
