SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Authorities in Puerto Rico have detained a man suspected of participating in a drive-by shooting that wounded two competitors in an Ironman triathlon.

Police said Friday that 33-year-old Abdiel Moreau Dones was arrested at a public housing complex in the capital of San Juan.

The shooting occurred March 15 in the upscale residential neighborhood of Miramar. Wisconsin athlete Liz Boivin was hit in the left calf while island resident Miguel Arroyo Ramos was hit three times in the left side. Both were on their bicycles.

A passenger in one of the two cars involved in the shooting was killed.

Officials say Dones also is suspected in the 2004 killing of a government official and two of his daughters.
