Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

MUR­DER de­tec­tives prob­ing the fa­tal shoot­ing of gang­ster Dave Court­ney’s step­son have ar­rested three sus­pects.

Gen­son Court­ney, 23, was shot in the head as he sat in a black Volk­swa­gen Golf in Green­wich, south east Lon­don, in July.

He was the step­son of Court­ney, the self­styled gang­ster who has writ­ten books about his ‘hardman’ life­style.

Three men – aged 27, 28 and 34 – were ar­rested at ad­dresses in south and east Lon­don on sus­pi­cion of mur­der and have been taken into cus­tody at a cen­tral Lon­don po­lice sta­tion.

DCI Mark Gower said: “I am ap­peal­ing to any­one who may have seen or heard any­thing sus­pi­cious to con­tact the po­lice.

“I would like to re­as­sure any­one con­cerned about con­tact­ing the po­lice that we have great ex­per­tise in pro­tect­ing wit­nesses.”
