Three people have been arrested following a firearms incident last month in which a 33-year-old man was shot in the legs.

On December 15, 2018, at about 7.05pm, the victim was sitting in his vehicle on Norfolk Road.

He was approached by two men and was shot twice in the legs.

He received hospital treatment and has since been discharged.

Today, January 4, warrants were executed at addresses in Reading as part of the ongoing investigation into the incident.

Two men, aged 26 and 24, and a 17-year-old boy, all from Reading, were all arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

They are currently in police custody.

Investigating officer, detective chief inspector Matt Stone, of Berkshire Force CID, said: “We are continuing our investigation into this incident and today have carried out warrants and made a number of arrests.

“I would like to appeal to anyone who witnessed this incident to come forward.

“Anyone with any information is asked to call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101, quoting reference number 43180383091.”
