Norwich: Boy Injured in Air Gun Shooting

A schoolboy has needed hospital treatment after getting shot on the elbow with an air gun.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the shooting that happened yesterday (Saturday 8 October) in Norwich.

Police were called at about 1.10pm from the boy's father. The 12 year old was on Bluebell Road when he was hit in the right elbow with the pellet. He was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich hospital for treatment.

Officers are now investigating whether this is linked to two reports of vehicles being damaged also on Bluebell Road. In one case a bus was hit by an unknown object that smashed one of its windows and, in the second, a white van was hit by an unknown object that smashed a window - shards of the glass caused an injury to the driver's face.

Police are trying to reassure the public and say they are isolated incidents.

Anyone who witnessed the incidents, saw any suspicious behaviour in the vicinity of Bluebell Road or has knowledge of the incidents should contact Bethel Street CID on 0845 4564567 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
