Carl Phillips, aged 28, has been jailed for twelve years and nine months after admitting causing grievous bodily harm with intent and possession of a firearm. In July last year, Phillips shot a man in the leg with a sawn-off shotgun in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. The victim was an accountant to a builder who had become involved in a disagreement over unpaid wages of £2,500. The builder, his accountant and three other employees, were lured to a meeting on a secluded road in the belief they would hand over the disputed money. Instead, Phillips shot the accountant’s left shin and the front of the car he and the other men had arrived in. The victim suffered a fractured fibula and had treatment to remove fragments of lead from the wound.
