By Barrie Hudson - 27 September 2023


Crimestoppers is offering a £20,000 reward for information relating to the attempted murder of a teenage boy in Swindon in April.

The 17-year-old suffered life-changing injuries after being shot in Odstock Road, Penhill in the early hours of Monday 24 April.
Swindon Police have issued CCTV images in relation to the crime, and a spokesperson said: "Crimestoppers is an independent organisation which is supporting the investigation by offering this substantial reward for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone linked to the incident."
One of the images, from 12.07am, shows five suspects travelling along Ramsbury Avenue on three electric bikes. Two of the bikes were carrying two people.
They then made their way toward the victim where a sixth unknown suspect joined them at 12.18am. The emergency services were called shortly after this time to treat the victim.
