Trial: Shooting victim is accused of carrying a gun

Evidence given in court by a victim of the tattoo parlour shootings was slammed as 'lies' by a defence barrister this morning.

Father-of-four David Anderson faced questioning from defence teams who claimed the attack was the result of a botched drug deal.

Yesterday he told the court he had gone with Mark Goddard to Fantasy Fine Line so Mr Goddard could give him a tattoo.

He said two men - allegedly defendants Anthony Cooke and Leon Dorman - rang on the door of the parlour and when Mr Goddard answered he was shot in the leg.

Mr Anderson received two gunshot wounds to his shoulder.

He denied knowing the men or their motive. When asked if it was related to drugs he replied: "no deal."

Today Jonathon Rose, defending Cooke, suggested Mr Anderson was the one with the gun, and had 'an almighty struggle' with his client during which it was fired.

David Gibson-Lee, defending Dorman, then suggested Mr Anderson's evidence was 'a complete pack of lies from start to finish'.

The trial continues.
