Men jailed for attempted murder - Aylesbury


Two men appeared at Reading Crown Court on Friday, 17 October 2014, and were jailed for a combined total of 41 years for shooting a man in Aylesbury earlier this year.

Following a three week trial at Reading Crown Court in September, Nicholas Talburt, aged 22, from Fellows Park Gardens, Walsall, was found guilty on Thursday, 25 September, of attempted murder and conspiracy to supply a class A drug (heroin).  He was sentenced to 23 years imprisonment for attempted murder and six years in prison for the drugs offence, to be served concurrently.

Marcus McIntosh, aged 20, of Waterside Street, West Bromwich, was also found guilty of attempted murder.  He was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment.

The case relates to an incident, which occurred on 16 March in Hilton Avenue, Aylesbury, where a 44-year-old man was shot while standing in the street.

At 7.15pm, the victim, a man from Bletchley, had taken a taxi to Hilton Avenue to meet the two men, McIntosh and Talburt. During the conversation, one of the men shot the victim three times in his legs before making off in a nearby car.

The victim got back into the taxi, which had been waiting for him, and asked to be taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital. He called police en route. He was treated for his injuries and was discharged at a later date.

McIntosh and Talburt were both arrested in Walsall on 04 April and charged on 05 April.
