Three Arrested After Man Shot In Waterlooville

A third person's been arrested after a man was shot in the head in Waterlooville, and seriously injured.

He's in hospital with a serious head injury after the shooting in Athena Avenue in the early hours of Monday 13 February.

The shooting happened around 12.50am. The man, in his 30s, was taken to Southampton General Hospital by ambulance.

Officers, including armed police, arrested a 37-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman at an address in High Lawn Way, Havant at around 2.25am - on suspicion of attempted murder.

A 31-year-old woman from Waterlooville has now been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to murder.

The two people who were arrested earlier remain in police custody at this time.

Detective Superintendent Darren Rawlings who is leading the investigation said: 

"This kind of incident is luckily rare in Hampshire and one we take very seriously. 

"It is likely local people will see a lot of officers and police activity in the area today as we both look to reassure the community and investigate the crime. We currently have two scenes one where the arrests happened and one where the victim was shot. 

"We would ask that anybody with information or who has witnessed the incident calls us on 101 and quotes Operation Endorse or they can approach one of the officers in the area."
