Woodford Green shooting victim ‘contracts infection in hospital’
The Woodford Green trader shot three times last week had been “making progress” in hospital but now has an infection, a family friend has said this morning.
The co-owner of milkshake parlour Cakes and Shakes in High Road, named locally as James Bryant, 24, suffered serious injuries after the attack on Monday of last week.
The friend said: “James is still hanging in there. He is a fighter and a strong lad.”
A 21-year-old man is at Redbridge Magistrates Court today charged with attempted murder over the shooting.
Temidire Owalabi of no fixed address, was charged on Saturday with attempted murder, possession of a shotgun with intent to endanger life on November 12; and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life on November 14.
