Custody remand after Hornby shooting

March 31, 2017 | By More

Bail was opposed for a Hornby man charged after a man was found shot in the leg with a shotgun overnight in Christchurch.

The injured man was found in Dickson Crescent, Hornby, about 7pm on Thursday after police were called to an incident they said appeared to be gang-related.

Paul Leslie Stockford, 32, a labourer, entered no plea to a charge of firing a shotgun at the other man with intent to do grievous bodily harm, when he appeared in the Christchurch District Court this morning.

Police opposed bail, and defence counsel Chris Nolan said no bail application was being made today.

Stockford was remanded in custody by Judge Tom Gilbert to appear by video-link from prison on April 24.
