Armed police arrest man in connection with city shooting

Godwin Road in Thanington

A 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the shooting of a man in Thanington earlier this summer.

Danny Mobey suffered serious injuries after he was shot outside a house in Godwin Road.

Police have now revealed that a suspect was detained by armed officers at a property in Dumpton Park Drive, Broadstairs, at 5pm yesterday (Wednesday).

He has been recalled to prison while inquiries into the case continue. A man and a woman are also in custody on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Mr Mobey, who is in his 20s, suffered a fractured pelvis and a punctured kidney in the attack on July 19.

It is believed that on the night of the incident two men in balaclavas pulled up in a silver Audi with blacked out windows and shot him in the stomach before speeding away.

The victim managed to escape and got as far as Oxford Road in Wincheap where he was taken into the care of paramedics before being transferred to a hospital in London.

After the shooting, Mr Mobey said: “I just want to say a massive thank you to the emergency services for saving my life.

“I won’t be walking for a while and I’m lucky to even be here. I’m still in a lot of shock, but the main thing is that I’m alive.”

Investigators carried out an extensive forensic search of the area and appealed to the public for help.
