A BAR owner who was shot outside his bar alongside a doorman and a female customer has spoke of his "shock and horror" at the "random" attack.

Osman Zinnureyin, 35, is still in hospital after being shot in the foot last Saturday at approximately 2.30am outside his North Pole bar, in Greenwich High Road. All three victims were taken to hospital by ambulance in stable non-life threatening conditions.

Thomas Scott, 28, from Norwood, was charged with causing grievously bodily harm to Mr Zinnureyin, a 44-year-old female customer and a doorman aged 30. Scott appeared at Greenwich Magistrates Court on Monday where he was also charged for having a shotgun without a certificate. He was remanded in custody and will appear at Woolwich Crown Court next Monday.

Mr Zinnureyin said: "I am shocked and disgusted that something like this could happen on a main road in Greenwich."

A 21-year-old woman was arrested in Plumstead and bailed to return on April 3.
