Police search for Willington Quay fight trio
POLICE are hunting three men believed to be at the centre of an organised fight that ended with a man being gunned down outside his home. Paul Borg was wounded in the leg by the blast after a violent disturbance broke out in Willington Quay, North Tyneside, on Thursday evening.
And less than 48 hours later the 25-year-old appeared before magistrates accused of violent disorder.
Borg, who lives in Quay View where the incident occurred, was taken to hospital and discharged after treatment.
He was later arrested and appeared at North Tyneside Magistrates’ Court with one knee swathed in bandages.
Now police have released details of three men they would like to question in relation to the shooting, which followed what officers described as an “organised fight” in the street. Detectives want to speak to Terry March, 29, Michael Curran, 30, and Philip Croney, 22, and have urged them to come forward.
A spokesman for Northumbria Police said: “Members of the public are warned not to approach the three men and anyone who may have any information as to the whereabouts of the three is asked to contact police immediately.”
Injured Borg limped into the court on Saturday, flanked by two security guards, and pleaded not guilty to the alleged offence.
