A man is due in court this morning charged with attempted murder over the shooting of the co-owner of a Woodford Green milkshake bar.

Temidire Owalabi, 21, of no fixed address, was charged on Saturday with attempted murder, possession of a shotgun with intent to endanger life on 12 November; and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life on 14 November. He will appear before Redbridge magistrates.

Three other men arrested in connection with the investigation have been bailed to a date in early January pending further inquiries.

James Bryant, 24, suffered serious injuries after being shot three times at Cakes and Shakes in High Road, on Monday last week. His condition in an east London hospital is critical but stable.

Two days previously there was another shooting at the milkshake bar, but no one was injured.

Detectives from Trident are leading the investigation and continue to appeal for witnesses and information.
