Men killed in Beck Row shooting identified

Two men who were killed in a shooting in Beck Row near Mildenhall last week have been named.

Police had been contacted shortly before 10:30pm on March 15 following the sound of gun shots near Willow Park in Beck Row. Officers arrived and discovered the bodies of two men, one of whom was inside a car which had been set on fire.

This man has now been identified as 29-year-old David Castrell of no fixed address. He had been living in Southend.

The second man was 20-year-old Shane Hill from Stromness Road, also in Southend.

Provisional post-mortem examination results showed that they both died from gunshot wounds.

Armed police continue to patrol the area with Safer Neighbourhood officers conducting high-visibility patrols to provide public reassurance.
