The other officer was discharged overnight.

Detective Inspector Sion Margrie, said: 'I am appealing for anyone who has any information about this incident to come forward and speak to us.

'There would have been people in the area at the time of the incident and it is likely someone saw or heard what happened, or even filmed the incident on their mobile phones.

'We want to speak to anyone who was there or has any other information that could help.

'Today we have been carrying out enquiries in the local area, including house to house enquiries.

'Although this was an isolated incident, we'll have extra officers on patrol this evening to reassure residents and address any concerns they may have.'

It happened in Pegasus Avenue, Aldershot, at 7pm on Tuesday, February 7.

A 41-year-old man from Aldershot who was initially arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent has now been re-arrested on suspicion of two counts of attempted murder.
