Man held over shotgun attack at house
Thursday 01 May 2008
A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a 61-year-old Plymouth man was blasted with a shotgun at his front door.
Car salesman Colin Pester was taken to hospital with a stomach wound.
The shooting happened in Lancaster Gardens, Whitleigh, when the victim was confronted by two men - one with a shotgun - when he answered the door of his converted barn home.
Devon and Cornwall Police went to an address in the Beacon Park Road area of Plymouth and arrested a 42-year-old man in connection with the incident.
Police are trying to confirm whether a silver Renault Clio, discovered ablaze in the city, was used by the attackers to escape from the scene.
