Cottenham men in court after Red Lodge shooting
Four men have appeared in court after an alleged shooting in Red Lodge at the weekend in which three were teenagers injured.
Bernard Mongan, 35, of Setchell Drove, Cottenham, Jim Mongan, 29, of Corbyn Lane, South Harrow, in London, David Mongan, 25, of Setchell Drove, Cottenham, and Thomas Mongan, 24, of Gregory Road, Southall, in London, appeared at Ipswich Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Tuesday).
All four have been charged with two counts of malicious wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and violent disorder.
The case follows an incident at a traveller site in Elms Road on Easter Sunday (April 4).
Following a disturbance, an 18-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy both suffered injuries caused by shotgun pellets. The 18-year-old suffered six injuries to the head, neck, arms and torso, while the younger boy sustained an injury to the knee.
A 17-year-old girl was also injured after suffering a fall while running for safety. All three were taken to hospital for treatment, but were discharged a short time later.
