A MAN has admitted shooting a landlord, a doorman and a female customer outside a bar in the early hours of the morning.

Thomas Scott, 29, of Tormount Road, Plumstead, pleaded guilty at Woolwich Crown Court to three counts of grievously bodily harm with intent, in connection with the shooting outside the North Pole bar in Greenwich High Road.

On February 21, the bar owner Osman Zinnureyin, 35, was shot in the foot alongside a doorman, 30, and a 44-year-old female customer.

All three victims were taken to hospital by ambulance in stable non-life threatening conditions.

Last Tuesday Scott also pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm with intent, possession of a prohibited firearm and possession of a firearm without certificate.

He was remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced on January 15.
