Police are continuing in their search to track down the Chigwell shooter who fired a gun at a 36-year-old man on Sunday hitting his shoulder.
The victim from East London was discharged later in the evening from hospital after receiving treatment for a bullet wound.
Essex Police have completed forensic enquiries at Woolston Hall, Abridge Road, and the scene has now been reopened, but are now appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Smith said: “We have spoken with more than 40 people who were at Woolston Hall on Sunday afternoon and a number of them have already given us statements.
“But we believe there are others who were there who we would still like to speak to.
You may also want to watch:
“The Hall would have been very busy and understandably some people would have wanted to leave very quickly given what happened.
“We would ask them to get in touch with us as they may have seen what happened or have other vital information of use.
