Men wanted in connection with Red Lodge shooting

Police are appealing for help to trace two men who are wanted in connection with a shooting in Red Lodge earlier this year.

John Paul Mongan, aged 39, and James Mongan, aged 30, are from the Cambridgeshire area and are wanted in connection with the shooting in Red Lodge last month.

Police were called at around 2.55pm on Sunday 4th April to reports shots had been fired in Elms Road.

An 18 year old man and a 16 year old boy both sustained injuries caused by shotgun pellets, with one of the males suffering wounds to his face and neck. A 17 year old girl was also injured during the incident after suffering a fall whilst running to safety.   

All three were taken to hospital for treatment, but were discharged a short time later. 

Four men have since been arrested and charged with two counts of malicious wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm (joint enterprise) and also violent disorder.

Following enquiries, police are now appealing for help to trace two further suspects. Their details are as follows:

  • 39 year old John Paul Mongan is described as white, of stocky build, with brown eyes and short, curly hair.
  • 30 year old James Mongan is described as white, of heavy build, with blue eyes and short auburn hair.

They both have Irish accents.

The Mongans have connections to the Cottenham area in Cambridgeshire.

Members of the public are advised not to approach these men but to call police immediately.

Anyone who believes they have seen these men, or who have any information regarding their whereabouts, are asked to contact West CID at Bury St Edmunds Police Station on 101 quoting reference 16672/21.
