Police investigating Cardiff shooting release CCTV of alleged suspects' car

Police have released CCTV footage of a car they believe was used by suspects in an attempted murder in Cardiff.

A 26-year-old man suffered facial injuries after being shot at around 7pm on Saturday February 10th at a flat in Lynwood Court, Elm Street in Roath. Detectives think an antique revolver pistol was used in the incident.

Three men wearing navy boiler suits were seen running away from Lynwood Court and half an hour later a silver Audi A4 estate, with the registration CV53 ZNU, was found burnt out in Sandringham Road, Penylan. Officers have now released CCTV showing a similar car driving around the Elm Street area before and after the shooting.

This is an extremely rare level of violence for South Wales and a full investigation is underway to identify and arrest those responsible.

We are appealing for information on the identity of the three men we believe are responsible but also for information regarding a silver Audi A4 estate car, registration number CV53 ZNU.

We know this vehicle travelled from London to Cardiff on the morning of Saturday, February 10th. We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen this vehicle and its occupants at any time on that Saturday.

Two green petrol containers were found inside the car – did they buy these in Cardiff or somewhere else on the way? We would like to hear from anyone with information which may help our enquiries.

– Detective Chief Inspector Rob Cronick, South Wales Police

South Wales Police think the incident may be related to 'county lines' drug activity, when an organised crime group extends their activities into other geographical areas.

The three suspects are all black, around 25 years old, and were wearing navy boiler suits and black boots. One was around 6ft tall and wore a distintive black and white paw print bandana around his face. The other two men were between 5ft 3in and 5ft 6in tall.

Anyone with information regarding the Lynwood Court incident is asked to contact South Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number 051129.
