Man bailed over Harleston shooting

A man has been granted police bail in connection with an incident in which two men were threatened with a gun.

Lee Henry, 38, of Martin Road, Harleston and his friend Jamie Burchant, who lives nearby, were confronted by a man wielding a gun and threatening to shoot them following a row over cars parked in front of Mr Henry's property.

A six hour stand off then ensued between the gunman and the police last Tuesday, which ended when he shot himself with the airgun and was taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston shortly after 11pm to receive treatment for minor stomach injuries.
