Cromer Shooting: Man and Woman Named

Police are naming the man and a woman found dead on the outskirts of Cromer yesterday afternoon.

Officers received a call concerning the safety of a resident on the housing estate at Compit Hills at approximately 2:50pm and upon arrival, the body of a woman, believed to be Andrea Johnson, aged 44, was discovered in the front garden of a property whilst the body of man, believed to be Keith Johnson, aged 58, was found in a rear garden close by.

Post mortems on the couple are taking place this morning and formal identification will follow.  However, officers have confirmed that both of them are thought to have died from gunshot wounds and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

Colleagues from the district council have been saying he will be greatly missed and was a 'great champion' for North Norfolk.

Sheila Oxtoby ,CEO North Norfolk District Council said:

‘It is with enormous shock and huge sadness that we have learned of the deaths of Council Leader Keith Johnson and his wife Andrea. Keith was a highly respected and much loved Member of North Norfolk District Council. He will be greatly missed by the Council and his death is a great loss to the whole community. Keith and Andrea were well known by many people in the district and our thoughts and prayers go out to both their families and close friends.’

Tom FitzPatrick, Deputy Leader, North Norfolk District Council said:
 
‘I am sure that everyone in North Norfolk and many much further afield will share the deep sense of loss that I and all my colleagues at the District Council feel at this terrible news. Keith was a great champion for North Norfolk and a great friend, and he worked tirelessly for the Council and for the people who live here. We will all miss him hugely.’
