Police seek car in Nottingham shooting investigation

Detectives investigating a shooting have released images of a distinctive car they want to trace.

The black Mitsubishi L200 Trojan was seen on CCTV leaving the area at speed after a man suffered a gunshot injury to his leg in Lotus Close, St Ann’s, just after 5pm on 26 July. His injuries were not life-threatening.

The vehicle that officers want to trace had false plates but is a distinctive car because Trojans are the less commonly seen model of the L200 and this one had custom-made chrome bars fitted on the front and rear.

A 21-year-old man was arrested on 29 July in connection with the incident. He was released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Detective Constable Alan Prentice, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “While we have already arrested one person in connection with the incident our enquiries are continuing.

“We’d like to thank the local community for their support and we are working hard with the information we are receiving to get to the bottom of what happened.

“We would now like to ask people to look at these images and tell us if they recognise this vehicle, and ideally who they have seen driving it, even if it is just a description of the person, or where they may have seen the car being driven or parked up. A small piece of information could be vital to the investigation.

“The use of guns will not be tolerated and we are absolutely determined to catch anyone who illegally possesses or uses them.

“If you have any information, no matter how small, please call us on 101, quoting incident number 735 of 26 July 2018. If you want to remain anonymous, you can pass on information via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
