A 25-year-old man who was found shot in the leg in Suffolk has been discharged from hospital, police said.

The victim, from east London, was found by a member of the public in Cordy's Lane, Trimley St Mary, near Felixstowe, about 13:00 GMT on Saturday.

The man was taken to Ipswich Hospital for treatment for the shotgun wound, but was taken home on Sunday after being interviewed by officers.

Suffolk Police believe the man was known to his attackers.

Det Insp Darryl Skuse said: "We do not believe this was a random attack. Officers will now be doing all they can to find those responsible."

He added: "I would ask anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident or who has any information to contact us as soon as possible."
