A man has appeared in court charged with attempted murder following a shooting in Norwich.

Police were called to Adelaide Street close to West End Street at about 2am on June 27 last year following an altercation followed by a gunshot.

The victim, a 19-year-old from London, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.
