Trial: Jury in shooting trial retires to consider verdicts

A jury at the Maidenhead tattoo parlour shooting trial has retired to consider its verdicts.

Four men have been standing trial at Reading Crown Court since January 9 over the attack at Fantasy Fine Line on April 11.

The jury went out shortly before midday today and has 16 separate verdicts to consider.

Anthony Cooke, 31, from Bedford and Leon Dorman, 30, from Dunstable are charged with conspiracy to rob, possession of a firearm with intent, two counts of attempted murder and two counts of wounding with intent.

Joseph Gentle, 22, of no fixed abode and Drizz James, 22, from Luton, are both charged with conspiracy to rob and possession of a firearm with intent.

They deny the charges.

The shootings left two men from the town, Mark Goddard and David Anderson, needing hospital treatment for gunshot wounds.
