A 22-year old man from Luton has been jailed for 27 and-a-half years, five of which will be on licence after pleading guilty to multiple offences from attempted murder to fire arms offences.
Justice McCann from Ravenhill Way, was jailed at Luton Crown Court. He will not be eligible for parole until 2035.
In October 2019, McCann pleaded guilty to five charges: attempted murder, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, two counts of possession of a prohibited weapon and possession with intent to supply cannabis.
In August 2019, police were called to reports that a gun had been fired in Albert Road in Luton, it was captured on CCTV and showed McCann running after a car and firing a gun.
A second call was then received fifteen minutes later reporting that a man had been shot in the chest outside shops in New Town Street. The victim has been left with injuries that will affect him for the rest of his life.
McCann's DNA was recovered from the weapon.
McCann was arrested at another property in Luton a few days later. Police found cannabis, a revolver and eleven rounds of ammunition and clothing matching the clothing seen in the CCTV footage.
