Detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate are today continuing with their enquiries following a shooting in south west Essex on Tuesday December 3.

Police were contacted at just after 3pm yesterday after reports of a domestic incident inside a property in Hemley Road, Orsett.

One man, believed to be in his early 60s, was declared dead at the scene. Another man, thought to be in his 40s, was taken to a London hospital suffering from gunshot injuries. A firearm was found at the property. The injured man’s condition is described as critical but stable. Officers are remaining with him.
