Detectives investigating the shooting of a 19-year-old in Norwich are appealing for witnesses who may have seen a small white hatchback near to the scene around the time of the attack.
Two males, aged 17 and 26, who were arrested yesterday, have both since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
Following the arrests police have seized a car which will be examined and the detective leading the case has appealed for witnesses to come forward.
Detective Inspector Chris Burgess, from Norwich CID, said: “We believe a vehicle was used during the incident by suspects and as a result of our enquiries we have seized a car.
“The car is a small white hatchback and I would be keen to hear from anyone who may have seen a vehicle matching this description in the area around the time of the incident.
“I would encourage anyone with information to come forward – not matter how insignificant the information may seem.
“We have a team of detectives working on this case which is progressing well with house to house, CCTV and witness enquiries ongoing. Detailed searches have taken place at the scene and the police cordon has now been removed.”
The victim, who is from London, remains in the Norfolk and Norwich University in a stable condition and is recovering from his injuries.
Superintendent Terry Lordan, Norwich Policing Commander, added: “We have been listening to the concerns of local residents and have arranged a series of street surgeries to give members of the local community the chance to speak with officers face-to-face about any issues or concerns they may have.”
The following street surgeries will take place:
• Monday July 2: Between 8.15am and 9.30am outside Notre Dame Primary School, West End Street
• Tuesday July 3: Between 10.30am and 12pm at Distillery Square
• Wednesday July 4: Between 10am and 12pm in the M&S Food Hall in Norwich city centre
• Friday July 6: Between 8am and 3pm at Norwich Market.
