Two men have been jailed for a total of 43 years after an Accrington man was gunned down outside his home.
Mark Walsh, 35, was blasted with a shotgun at close range in an alleyway at the back of his home in Maudsley Street, Accrington shortly before 9pm on January 12.
Mr Walsh survived the incident but was showered with 100 pellets and has since been left ‘profoundly deaf’.
He was taken by ambulance to the Royal Preston Hospital where he remained for several days before being discharged.
Donovan Wallace, 24, of Lodge Lane, Lytham St Annes, and Jack Wilding, 20, of no fixed abode, were both found guilty at Preston Crown Court of conspiracy to commit murder.
Wallace was handed a 25-year jail sentence and Wilding was sentenced to 18 years behind bars.
The court was told that Wallace had carried out the shooting and Wilding had assisted in the act.
The jury was unable to reach a verdict on Kevin King, 30, of Lodge Lane, Lytham St Annes, who was also charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
A decision will now be made over whether he should face a retrial.
