Police have released an image of a man they want to trace over the attempted murder of a another man who was shot through the door of his home in Sussex.

Sussex Police said David Martin, 42, also known as Rudolph and Bassy, might have "valuable information" about the shooting in Park Way, Crawley.

Detectives believe he could be in Newport in Gwent, Birmingham or London.

A 29-year-old man suffered minor injuries to his leg during the incident on 3 August.

Sussex Police said the victim slammed the door before the shots were fired, potentially saving his life.

Two men charged

Det Insp David Wardley-Wilkins said: "I am keen to talk to David Martin about the shooting as I believe he may be able to assist us in this investigation.

"I would appreciate it if he contacted us, or anyone who knows him could tell us where he is. It is possible that David Martin is in Newport in Gwent, Birmingham or Lewisham in London."

Two men from Birmingham have already been charged with attempted murder and remanded in custody until 26 November.

The men, aged 30 and 50, have also been charged with possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.
