Riel Karmy-Jones QC and Matthew Sorel-Cameron have successfully prosecuted a 16 year old Suffolk teenager who was found guilty of the attempted murder of a 15 year old teenager at Ipswich Crown Court.
The victim had been left partially paralysed after being shot from a distance of only 1.5 metres while walking to school in Kesgrave in September 2020.
The defendant took his father’s car and drove to the location, where he lay in wait for the victim for more than an hour then shot him with his grandfather’s Beretta. He shot the victim with the double-barrelled shotgun and was also found guilty of a further offence of possession of a shotgun with intent to endanger the boy’s life. He had previously admitted to possession of a shotgun with intent to cause fear of injury to the boy.
The defendant will be remanded in custody until his sentencing in September.
Riel Karmy- Jones QC and Matthew Sorel-Cameron were instructed by Naomi Turner at the CPS.
