Berkshire tattoo parlour shooting: man, 22, is charged

A 22-year-old man has been charged in connection with a shooting incident at a Berkshire tattoo parlour.

Two men, aged 45 and 51, were hurt in the shooting in the Fantasy Fine Line, St Mark's Road, Maidenhead, in April.

Joseph Anthony Gentle, of no fixed abode, will appear at Slough Magistrates' Court later.

He is charged with possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Four men have already been charged with conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the same incident.

Failed to answer

Sean Fury, 29, of Essex Close, Luton; Anthony Cooke, 31, of Union Street, Bedford; Leon Dorman, 29, of Hinton Walk, Houghton Regis, Dunstable and Simon Sarkissian, 41, of Melville Road, Willesden, London, remain in custody.

They are due to appear before Reading Crown Court on 26 August.

A fifth man, a 47-year-old, was also charged and bailed in connection with the incident.

However, he failed to answer bail and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

A 44-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice remains on bail.

The two men injured in the shooting were both discharged from hospital after being treated for wounds to the leg and shoulder.
