A pair of drug dealers have been jailed following a shooting which took place in broad daylight outside a doctor's surgery.

Caleb Fleming, 26, of Long Furlong Drive, Slough, appeared via live video link before Reading Crown Court today (May 7).

He pleaded guilty to GBH after shooting a man during a confrontation in Tamarisk Way, Slough, last November.

Michael Christian, 28, of Fairview Road, Taplow - an accomplice of Fleming - attended in person for sentencing, having accepted a charge of being concerned in the supply of cannabis.

The court heard that Fleming and Christian were involved in the local cannabis trade.

On November 21, the pair confronted a pair of men outside a doctor's surgery.

Fleming went to his home - then returned with a handgun.

CCTV footage of the incident was produced in court.

Prosecuting barrister Margia Mostafa said: "Mr Fleming is dressed in a grey tracksuit, and can be seen moving towards the victim.

"As he does so, he raises his right arm, and fires the handgun in his possession."

A bullet struck one of the other men. He was left with a wound to his groin, and suffered a fractured pelvis.

Surgeons at John Radcliffe Hospital retrieved the bullet from one of his buttocks.

His injuries were described at the time as 'life-changing'.

Judge Sarah Campbell remarked: "It is harder to imagine a more dangerous offence than taking a loaded firearm onto the street and discharging it at someone."

Fleming and Christian were arrested.

On their seized phones, police found evidence of their drug-dealing activities, which generated tens of thousands of pounds.

The prosecution suggest that the confrontation in November was motivated by their involvement in the cannabis trade.

Fleming personally addressed the court, expressing remorse for his offending.

He said: "I take full responsibility for my actions, and feel no words can make up for them."

He stated that he began carrying a firearm after he and his family were themselves victimised by home invaders in October 2023.

But Judge Campbell dismissed this claim, stating: "He [Fleming] hasn't chosen to arm himself with a loaded firearm just because a couple of people broke into his flat."

Fleming was jailed for 15 years and nine months, plus a four-year extended sentence.

Christian - who played no direct role in the shooting - was handed a three-year sentence.
