Detectives investigating a shooting in Bury St Edmunds last month have rearrested a man from Dorset.

Police were called at 6.45pm on Tuesday, August 4 to reports that a man had been shot in the stomach at an address in Forum Court, on Station Hill.

The victim, aged in his 30s, was successfully treated in hospital for his injuries.

A 34-year-old man, from the Dorchester area, has this afternoon been rearrested in Weymouth on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

He was originally arrested on Saturday, August 8 and interviewed before being released on bail. He will now be brought back to Suffolk for further questioning.

Four men have been charged with conspiracy to murder in connection with this incident.

Three are from south-west England - Simon Webber, aged 31, of Sydenham Close, Bridgwater, Somerset; Frank Warren, aged 51, of Victoria Road, Dorchester; and Andrew Seaton, aged 39, of Frome View, Maiden Newton, Dorchester.

All three appeared before Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday, August 25 where they were remanded in custody and are due to appear in court again at the end of October.

Earlier this month, 59-year-old Suffolk man Colin Deferia, of Battisford Road, Barking, was also charged with the same offence and he appeared at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, September 3, where he was remanded in custody and committed to appear before Ipswich Crown Court tomorrow (Tuesday, September 15).

Two women remain on police bail pending further enquiries in connection with this incident, both of whom were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

The women, aged 59 and 29 and from the Needham Market area, were released on bail until Thursday, October 1.
