Man Charged With Attempted Murder After Brighton Shooting
20th March 2015
A man has been charged with attempted murder and conspiracy to murder following a shooting in Brighton in January this year.
Adam Willis, 33, of no fixed address, is accused of attempting to murder a 39-year-old man and conspiracy to murder a 24-year-old man in Elmore Road. Willis is due to appear at Brighton Magistrates' Court today (Friday 20 March).
Three men who went to the address on 27 January had fired a single shot through the door which hit the 39-year-old victim but did not cause life-threatening injuries.
Two other men aged 24 and 26, who have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and attempted murder, remain on bail until 31 March.
