ots-wanted by essex police Francis O’Donoghue southport ots onthespot ots
A gunman wanted for the attempted murder of two of his neighbours on the London border has become Essex Police’s most wanted man. Francis O’Donoghue, 27, is wanted following a shooting on a travellers’ site off Goatswood Lane in Navestock, Essex at 3:30pm on Tuesday, August 27.

Two men in their 20s from the Brentwood area sustained gunshot wounds to the legs and chest and underwent surgery. They are now recovering after being discharged from hospital.

Francis O’Donoghue is urged to hand himself in to police as detectives focus their attention on travellers sites in Essex, Hertfordshire and throughout London but it is thought that he could now be anywhere in the country.

People should avoid any physical contact with him as he may be in possession of a handgun, with anyone coming into contact him urged to call police immediately. However, there is nothing to suggest that people in the wider community are at risk of being injured.

Francis O’Donoghue is described as white, approximately 5ft 11ins tall, of medium build, has short-brown hair, has protruding ears and speaks with an Irish accent.

Anyone with information in connection with this shooting is urged to contact Essex Police on 101, email on [email protected]or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. Anyone who knows of the man’s whereabouts is urged to call 999.
