Car park shooting in Seaton Burn 'not random'

Police are searching for two men who shot a man in the back on Tyneside.

The 54-year-old man was getting out of his car at about 16:10 GMT when he was shot in the car park of the Six Mile Bridge Inn in Seaton Burn.

Police said although his injuries were not life threatening, inquiries suggested it was not a random incident.

The two men drove off in a white van towards the A19. Police have increased patrols in the area and appealed for anyone with information to call 101.
