A man has been convicted of attempted murder and possession of a weapon following an incident in Aylesbury.
On Thursday 29th August 2019, at Aylesbury Crown Court, an 18 year old man of Mandeville Road, Aylesbury was convicted of attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.
Following a two week trial at Aylesbury Crown Court, the jury found the 18 year old man guilty by a unanimous decision. The conviction follows an investigation by Thames Valley Police.
The conviction relates to an incident that occurred in an alley off North Drive, Aylesbury at around 1.00am on Monday 10th December 2018 during which a 25 year old man was shot sustaining injuries to his hand, face and body.
The 18 year old man was charged with the offences on Wednesday 13th March 2019.
The officer in the case, DC Suzie Price, of Force CID at Aylesbury police station, said: ‘This was a long and complex investigation.
This incident was isolated and [the 18 year old man] was known to the victim.
I hope that this conviction will serve as a deterrent to others who think they can use violence and intimidation within the Thames Valley.‘
