Newport shooting: Gunman's estranged wife was target


Gwent Police said the man who injured three women in a shooting at a hairdresser's in Newport, south Wales, was targeting his estranged wife.

Darren Williams, from Cwmbran, used a double-barrelled shot gun in the attack at Carol-Ann's hair stylist in Malpas Road, Newport on Friday afternoon.

His estranged wife was shot in the knee while two salon clients suffered minor injuries from rebounds from the shots.

Mr Williams' body was found in woods about six hours later.

Supt Dave Johnson, Gwent Police commander for Newport, said the gunman fired from both barrels in the attack.
