Two men charged in connection with 'shots' being fired in Slough

Two men charged in connection with shots being fired in Slough

Two men have been charged in connection with an incident which saw armed police respond to reports of shots being fired in Slough.

Jamie Cassell, 27, of Wantage Road, Reading, and Ryan Taylor, 19, of Mill Street, Slough, were both charged this morning (Monday) with possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.

The charges are in connection with an incident on Friday at about 4pm when two men were seen running from Stoke Gardens, across Stoke Road onto Stanley Cottages.

Police said one of the men was in possession of a 'what looked like a firearm' which he fired behind him several times as the pair ran off.

Cassell and Taylor are due to appear at Slough Magistrates’ Court this morning.

*A previous version of this story listed the charge against both men as 'possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence'. This was due to an error by Thames Valley Police and has now been amended.
