DETECTIVES investigating a shooting that left a Southampton man in hospital have today made a fourth arrest.
A 38-year-old man from Southampton was detained by Hampshire’s Major Investigation Team in the early hours of this morning on suspicion of attempted murder.
As reported, police have also already arrested two 25-year-old men – one from Southampton, one from London – on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with the shooting in Townhill Park on Sunday evening.
Armed police descended on Vanguard Road at 7.15pm after a 27-year-old collapsed at a Tesco Express store in Cobden Avenue.
He is still recovering in Southampton General Hospital after undergoing surgery on non-life threatening injuries to his legs.
Police are still hunting for the weapon, believed to be a handgun, that was used in the attack.

He was last night released on police bail until March 6.
The 25-year-old Southampton man was arrested on Sunday evening and later released after questioning. He is due to report back to police today.
