A THIRD man now faces trial over a shooting in Godmanchester in June.

Harry Beddoes, 24, of Henshaw Road, Wellingborough, has been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and possessing a firearm with intent, in connection with the shooting in Anderson Crescent, Godmanchester, on June 1. He was due in court in Huntingdon this morning (Tuesday).

The 41-year-old victim was shot in the groin after answering the door of a friend’s semi-detached house, where he was believed to have been house-sitting. He was found by a neighbour lying in a pool of blood in the doorway.

He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, with a single wound, described at the time as serious but not life-threatening, and was discharged on June 7.

Martin Hunt, 56, of Dowthorpe End, Earls Barton, and Travis Pratt, 28, of Station Road, Earls Barton, have already been charged with wounding with intent and aggravated burglary. Both men have been remanded in custody for trial in October.
