New appeal as Aylesbury shooting victim remains in hospital

Police have made a new appeal for information about a shooting in Buckinghamshire on 28 March which has left a man critically ill.

The 33-year-old man was found in a house in Stour Close, Aylesbury, and had been shot in the head and arms.

Police believe it was a targeted attack. The man remains unresponsive in hospital with brain injuries.

A member of the family said: "He is in a critical condition and the prognosis for his recovery is uncertain."

The victim's family do not wish to have his name released.

Targeted attack

The family member said: "Doctors are worried that he will not recover from this attack.

"He is a loving son and father and we are devastated by what has happened to him. We would urge anyone who has any knowledge of this incident to please talk to the police."

Det Ch Insp Gill Wootton said: "We do not believe that this was a random attack and believe that the victim was specifically targeted at his home.

"He was a resident in Aylesbury, however, we know that he spent a lot of his time in north-west London where he grew up.

"I would appeal to people from both local communities to help us with this investigation and ask anyone who has knowledge of this shooting, to please speak to us."

Police said they wanted to speak to a man dressed like a delivery driver. The man was seen in the close between 09.30 GMT and 10.00 GMT on the day of the shooting.

He is described as white, aged in his 40s and about 5ft 9ins. He was wearing a dull green uniform and was carrying a clipboard.
