This is the face of Caleb Fleming, the 26-year-old drug dealer who shot another man in broad daylight outside a doctor's surgery.

On November 21 last year, Fleming was involved in a confrontation with a pair of men in Tamarisk Road, Slough.

He went to his flat in nearby Long Furlong Drive, where he retrieved an illegal handgun.

He then fired a shot at one of the other men, who was hospitalised with life-changing injuries to his pelvis and groin.

At Reading Crown Court today (May 7), Fleming was jailed for 15 years and nine months - with an extended four years on licence.

An associate of Fleming, 28-year-old Taplow resident Michael Christian, was jailed for three years and four months on a drug supply charge.

Christian was present at the scene of the shooting, but was not directly involved.

The pair were cannabis wholesalers, and the court heard that, at the end of last year, they were handling tens of thousands of pounds worth of drugs.

Judge Sarah Campbell suggested that the shooting must have been motivated by disputes within the local cannabis trade.

Detective Inspector Stuart May said: "Caleb Fleming and Michael Christian were involved in the supply of cannabis, and this resulted in them being in a confrontation with the victim. 

"In the confrontation, Fleming was armed with a loaded firearm, which he discharged towards the victim - this taking place in broad daylight in a public place, demonstrating no regard for the risks to the victim or public.

"The victim was taken to hospital and required surgery to remove the bullet.

"Thankfully, incidents involving firearms are incredibly rare, but I know the impact such incidents have in our communities.

"Caleb Fleming is a highly dangerous individual, and has now been convicted and sentenced for these offences and will serve a lengthy prison sentence, while Christian has also been held to account for his criminal activity.

"Slough is a safer place with Fleming off the streets, and I hope that this outcome will go some way to reassuring the community that we will always seek to put dangerous offenders behind bars where they belong."
