Police had been warned about Feltwell gunman
Police had been warned about a gunman two days before he shot a woman while she pushed her baby grandson in a pram before turning the gun on himself, it was claimed today (Monday).
Mark Osler, 52, shot Rachel Puttock with a pistol as she walked near her home in Feltwell, near Brandon, with her daughter and month-old grandson.
Ms Puttock survived the attack last July but Mr Osler then turned the gun on himself.
At an inquest into his death at King's Lynn Magistrates' Court today (Monday), Osler's ex-wife, Paula Peckham, said she had contacted police two days earlier.
She said she told officers Osler had a gun and had said: 'If she turns up at my door, I will shoot her.'
Norfolk Police said they had been unable to trace the complaint.
Osler and Ms Puttock are believed to have been in an 'on-off' relationship and she had recently decided to return to her husband.
