Paul Gascoigne became bizarrely involved with the hunt for Raoul Moat (Picture: PA) It's been 10 years since Raoul Moat went on the run after shooting his ex-girlfriend Samantha Stobbart and her new partner Chris Brown, and resulting in a police manhunt which hit the headlines for several days as they attempted to track him down. Now the chilling crime is recounted in ITV's Manhunt: The Raoul Moat Story, with Nicky Campbell narrating the documentary, which consists of archive footage and interviews with family members and journalists who covered the story. Moat, 37, a former bouncer, wounded Stobbart and killed Brown in the shooting on 3 July 2010, and the next day shot and blinded PC David Rathband, 44, as he sat in his car in Newcastle – with Rathband tragically taking his own life in 2012. What happened between Paul Gascoigne and Raoul Moat? He claimed he had brought Moat 'a can of lager, some chicken, a fishing rod, a Newcastle shirt and a dressing gown', although the police did not allow Gascoigne near Moat.
It was just two days later, in the early hours of the 3rd July, when he targeted his ex-girlfriend Samantha Stobbart and her new partner, Chris Brown near Gateshead, Tyne and Wear. Raoul Moat shot them both – Brown was killed and Samantha Stobbart was hospitalised because of her injuries. Moat was said to have held a grudge against police officers, because his ex-girlfriend Samantha had lied about being in a relationship with an officer. Rathband, who happened to have on a previous occasion stopped Raoul Moat under suspicion for having an uninsured van, was targeted randomly – just because he was police. After he had killed one person and wounded two others, Raoul Moat went on the run for a week. During the manhunt, Moat is said to have made threats via letter, on his Facebook profile and in phone calls which included saying he would kill any officers who tried to stop him. Raoul Moat's threat to kill innocent members of the public will be heard in his own words for the first time. Driven by paranoia and jealousy, the former bouncer and prisoner shot and wounded ex-partner Samantha Stobbart, killed her new boyfriend Chris Brown and blinded Northumbria Police officer David Rathband with a point-blank gun blast. For almost a week, Moat evaded capture and threatened to kill more police officers - but innocent members of the public were in his crosshairs too. According to the broadcaster, it's understood this is the first time Moat has been heard to speak the words outside of court and internal police events. In the recording, he says: "The next lie I see in the paper I will kill an innocent of the public. Manhunt: The Raoul Moat Story will air on ITV at 9pm on Thursday, July 9
