A man has been charged with attempted murder after an unarmed police officer was shot in south London last week.

Damian Devine, of Allder Way, Croydon, is also accused of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life and using a weapon to try to resist arrest.

The 26-year-old is the fourth person to be charged over the attack, which took place in Kingsdown Avenue, South Croydon, on 15 July.

The officer was taken to hospital with arm injuries after he was shot.

Mr Devine, 26, is due to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on Saturday.

Both have been accused of possessing ammunition and possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.

A fourth man - Jason Anpomah, 20, of Dunluce Avenue, Belfast - was arrested in south Belfast on Wednesday.

He has been charged with assisting offenders and withholding information, and was remanded in custody until 29 July.
