Police have charged a man with attempted murder following a shooting in Nottingham which injured a 17-year-old boy.

The teenager was left with serious injuries in the incident at the junction of Ireton Street and Portland Road in Radford at around 10.50pm on Friday, June 29.

Keiron Saunders, of Cardale Road in Nottingham, was arrested in the early hours of yesterday morning (September 3) and later charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent.

The 30-year-old was remanded in custody to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court tomorrow (September 5).

At the time, police described the teenager’s injuries as “serious but not life-threatening”.

Detective Inspector Ed Cook said: “Nottinghamshire Police is committed to tackling gun and knife crime, and we like the community we serve, believe there is no place for weapons on our streets.

“It takes a collaborative effort between the entire community, including our partners and members of the public to combat this issue. We investigate robustly and aim to put offenders before the courts as soon as possible.”
