Two men arrested over shooting of policeman
Two men have been arrested in Northern Ireland in connection with the shooting of an unarmed police officer in south Croydon earlier this month in what is being treated as a case of attempted murder.
One of the men is being taken to London by detectives, while the second has been held for questioning in Belfast. Two men have already been charged in London in connection with the incident.
The police officer was injured in the arm on Friday, when one of a number of suspects he was pursuing opened fire. His injuries are described as not life-threatening. The two men, aged 26 and 20, were arrested in the Lisburn Road area of south Belfast.
Two men have already appeared at Croydon magistrates court charged with possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life. They are Demar Provan, 21, of no address, and Adewale Ogunsanya, 22, of Streatham.
