A TRAINEE driving instructor has appeared in court charged with shooting a man in a café with a vintage gun.

Gary Oxley, 48, of Hornbean Avenue, Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, allegedly killed Joseph Olliffe, 35, from Bromley, at point-bank range as he drank coffee in the DA Sandwich Café, in Court Road, Mottingham.

Oxley appeared via video link from Belmarsh prison at the Old Bailey last Friday.

He wore a blue jumper and spoke only to confirm his name but did not enter a plea. He is accused of murdering the father-of-two, who was shot twice in the head at 3.45pm on March 4 this year.

Oxley is also charged with the attempted murder of an "unknown person" on the same date.

He is further accused of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, relating to a .455-calibre Wembley mark one revolver.

He is due to appear on July 10 for a plea and case management hearing.

A trial date has not yet been set.
