DCI detectives are looking into a botched robbery that saw one person shot in Eastleigh’s 14th Street.
Two armed men are caught on tape shooting at a man on Tuesday before taking off on boda bodas.
The victim, a man in a black jacket and beige trousers was watching as the gunmen got away from the scene of crime.
Innocent bystanders scampered for safety as others watched the two get away.
