Victim of Scunthorpe shooting named

The 26-year-old victim of an alleged shooting on Dale Street in Scunthorpe has been named as Daniel Real.

He is believed to have suffered serious injuries as a result of what Humberside Police are calling a targeted attack, on Monday 19 October.

Paramedics were called to the scene after the alleged shooting.

Investigators were then seen examining a vehicle which appeared to have a bullet hole in the rear driver side door the following day.

Seven people have been arrested so far, and a major police investigation into the attack has been launched.

Most recently, a 16-year-old boy and a 32-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

The previous five suspects were released on conditional bail.

Two have since be taken back into custody on prison recall.

DCI Phil Gadd said:

“Work is continuing, exploring every line of enquiry, to determine the full circumstances which led to this targeted attack.

“Making our communities feel safer and united following any incident of this seriousness is extremely important to us, which is why officers have been maintaining a highly visible presence in the area to offer reassurance to the community and listen to any concerns raised.

“You will continue to see that visible presence over the coming days as our enquiries continue.”

Both of the new suspects remain in police custody at this time, according to the latest police report.

The father of one remains in hospital in ‘serious but stable’ condition as the investigation continues.

Anyone with information which may be beneficial to the case is asked to speak to an officer in the area, where there is still a heavy police presence.
