Three face police quiz over shooting
Police will today interview three men over a shooting which took place during an organised fight between rival gangs.
The men, aged 29, 30 and 22 and from the Wallsend area of North Tyneside, were arrested yesterday and are being held in the Merseyside area.
Officers were hunting Michael Curran, 30, Philip Croney, 22 and Terry March, 29, since Paul Borg, 25, was blasted in the leg and left bleeding outside his home in Willington Quay, North Tyneside, last Thursday.
After the shooting, Borg, of Quay View, was taken to North Tyneside General Hospital by friends, where he was treated for a wound to his right leg, before being released and placed under police protection.
He was later charged with violent disorder and appeared before North Tyneside Magistrates' Court on Saturday morning, where he denied the offence and was remanded in custody.
Four other men were arrested in connection with the inquiry so far.
Two of them remain in custody and continue to help police with their inquiries, while two others were released with no further action to be taken.
It is understood detectives are still searching for the gun.
Police still want to trace a distinctive silver Renault Clio car with blacked out windows and registration number Y969 KCN, which was seen leaving the Willington Quay area just after the shooting, shortly after 6pm.
