Four arrests have been made by detectives in the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate investigating a shooting in Shorne.

At around 9.20pm on 9 February 2020, a man was shot at a private address in Ifield Road. He has received treatment for a gunshot wound and is continuing to recover from the injury.

The offender had shot him from the outside the property, through a window, and detectives believe the offence was pre-planned, but the victim was not the intended target.

Following numerous enquiries, four men were arrested in connection with the incident on 10 November.

Two of the arrested men, aged 34 and 42, are from South East London. The 42-year-old has now been bailed and the other, who is serving a prison sentence for an unrelated matter, has been released from Kent Police’s custody, pending further enquiries.  

The other two suspects, aged 22 and 23, are from the Greater Manchester area.

Both have been released pending further enquiries however the 23-year-old is currently serving a prison sentence for an unrelated matter.

Detective Chief Inspector Gavin Moss, the senior investigating officer for the case, said: ‘These arrests are a significant development in our enquiries, however the investigation very much remains ongoing.

‘It is possible there are still people out there who would have information on this incident, but are yet to get in contact with us. I would encourage these individuals to contact us at their earliest opportunity.’
