Two more people have been arrested in connection with the shooting of a man in Dartford, Kent, taking the total number of arrests thus far to four.

Kevin McKinley, 32, was found shot on Overy Street in Dartford on 12 February. He was taken to hospital but later died of his injuries.

A 24-year-old-woman and a 25-year-old man, both from Dartford and known to the victim, were arrested on suspicion of murder on 13 February. Both are still in custody.

Kent Police confirm they have arrested two more men, one on suspicion of assisting an offender, and the other on suspicion of assault. However the latter has since been released without charge.

Following the shooting, local resident resident Nicola Daniels, 38, told Kent Online: "I heard something really loud go off, like a bang, and the dog started barking.

"My neighbour knocked on the door and said there'd been a shooting over the road.

The victim's uncle, Charles McKinley, added: "Kevin's mum rang me last night and said that he'd been shot.

"I thought she meant with a BB gun, but then I found out he'd actually been shot with a real gun."

The area where the shooting took place was cordoned off as police continue to investigate the incident. A firearm has been recovered.
