Police have released a photograph of the man they want to trace in connection with the shooting of PC Rachael Bown.
24-year-old Trevon Kyron Thomas is wanted for the shooting of the PC as she investigated a burglary on Lenton Boulevard.
Thomas, who is from Bilborough, is described as black and slim. He has one or more gold teeth and speaks with a Caribbean accent. Police have urged members of the public not to approach Thomas, but rather to call them with information on his whereabouts.
Bown herself is said to be recovering well after a second operation on her abdomen on Thursday. The QMC’s clinical director John Doran called the operation "routine," saying it was done to ensure there were no complications with her original surgery.
"Her condition deteriorated slightly overnight," Doran explained, "and although it was considered that this was due to the development of a chest infection, it was felt that it would be appropriate to undertake a second operation…to make sure there were no delayed effects from her gunshot injury."
