2 Men Arrested After Shooting In Aylesbury
3:15pm 7th August 2012
Thames Valley Police has arrested two people, in connection with a shooting incident in Stour Close, Aylesbury, in March.
Officers have arrested a 33 year-old man and a 32 year-old woman in Grays, Essex, following an operation earlier this morning Tuesday 7th August, which also involved the search of a residential property.
They have both been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.
A 33 year-old man was found with gunshot wounds to his arms and head at about 10am on Wednesday 28 March. He remains in a serious but stable condition.
Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Gill Wootton told Mix 96: "I would like to stress that this remains an ongoing inquiry and the two arrests this morning are a continuation of this investigation.
“As I have previously said, we do not believe this was a random attack and believe the victim was specifically targeted at his home."
Ch Insp Wootton added: "Although he was a resident in Aylesbury, he spent a lot of his time in the north west London area, where he grew up.
I am still appealing to members of both communities to come forward if they have any information which could assist our investigation. A number of people have already come forward and have spoken with officers, but we believe there are still people out there with information they have not yet shared with us. Now is the time to do so."
Police also remain keen to speak to a man described as being dressed as a delivery driver, who was seen in the Stour Close area between 9.30am and 10am on Wednesday 28 March. He was white, in his forties and about 5ft 9ins. He was wearing a dull green uniform and carrying a clipboard.
Officers would also like information on any suspicious people or vehicles seen in the Stour Close area on the day of the shooting, or the preceding days.
If you can help, please call Det Ch Insp Wootton via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
If you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
