Two men have been arrested over last week’s Elmore Road shooting.
On Thursday (5 February) a 31-year-old man from Hove was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and a 24-year-old man from Brighton has been detained on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and both are still in custody.
On Tuesday 27 January a 39-year-old man living in Elmore Road, Brighton, suffered shotgun wounds at 11.25pm.
Three men who went to his address fired a single shot through the door which hit him but did not cause life-threatening injuries. He was taken by ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton and was treated. The suspects had fled the scene by the time armed officers arrived.
DCI Paul Rymarz, of the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team, who is leading the investigation, said:
