A man has been arrested by Northamptonshire Police in connection with the shooting of a 16-year-old teenage boy in Wellingborough.
Alain Mbuku, aged 21, was arrested on Wednesday in Bedford by officers from the Operation Worcester campaign tackling gang violence in Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire.
Mbuku, from Bedford, featured on Crimewatch last month after he failed to answer to police bail in relation to the incident which involved the discharge of a firearm in the town in March last year.
A Northamptonshire Police spokesman said: ” He has been charged with possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and failing to surrender into police custody. He appeared at Northampton Magistrates Court yesterday (Thursday, July 6) and was remanded into custody to appear at Northampton Crown Court on July 28.”
