Trio linked to Coldharbour Lane shooting facing attempted murder charges

Three men have been arrested and charged with two counts of attempted murder after a shooting incident in Brixton.

Detectives from Trident, part of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, continue to investigate after police were called to reports of a fight and shots fired in Coldharbour Lane at around 5am on Sunday, January 14.

Officers attended and found a woman suffering gunshot injuries. She was taken to hospital by ambulance.

Three men – not the same men as the ones subsequently charged – turned up in hospital, one with gunshot injuries, one who had been stabbed and one who had been assaulted. All were discharged.

Yesterday, Shane Brown, 20, of New Park Road, Tulse Hill, appeared at Croydon Magistrates’ Court charged with two counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life. He was remanded in custody, with details of his next court appearance not yet known.

Previously, Gerald Atkins, 36, of Greyhound Terrace, Streatham, appeared at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on January 17, charged with two counts of attempted murder, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, possession of a prohibited weapon and violent disorder.

Conrad Bair, 29, of Haslemere Avenue, Merton, appeared at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on January 20, charged with two counts of attempted murder, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and violent disorder.

Both Atkins and Bair were remanded in custody to next appear at Kingston Crown Court on November 25.
