Helen's Family: "Despite this victory for justice there can be no celebration"
Shot Fired In Street
Police have fired at a 16 year old in Bedford because of fears he was carrying a gun.
Officers fired a plastic baton round - something which shouldn't kill you but just incapacitate you - in Bedford's Ampthill Road just after 2am on Wednesday 8 August 2012.
The 16 year old was wanted for breaching the conditions of his licence, having been released early from a sentence for causing grievous bodily harm.
Armed and unarmed police went to Ampthill Road at about 2am where the youth confronted officers with a firearm.
A baton round was fired at him and a police dog was sent to stop him.
The youth was checked over at Bedford Hospital. He suffered bruising and was taken into police custody.
