Two more people have been arrested in connection with an attempted murder in December, after the discovery of a firearm.

A boy, 17, and a woman, 35, from Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, are being held on suspicion of assisting an offender and possession of a firearm.

The victim, a man in his 20s, sustained hand, face and body injuries on North Drive, Aylesbury, on 10 December.

Two men, one aged 20 and the other 19, were arrested in December. They have been released without charge.

Det Insp James Mather from Thames Valley Police said: "These arrests were made in connection with the discovery of a firearm, which is believed to be linked to the incident."

He is appealing for witnesses to come forward.
