Taverham: BB Gun Pellets Fired
Police are appealing for information after three children were hit by BB gun pellets in Taverham in Norfolk.
Two incidents occurred on the afternoon of Tuesday 17 April 2012. In the first, a 12-year-old girl was struck on the leg by a pellet on Kingswood Avenue between 4.55pm and 5.05pm as she walked with friends. In the second, a 10-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl were struck on the neck and back by pellets on Pendlesham Rise, between 5pm and 5.05pm.
All three suffered slight reddening to the skin where they were hit.
On Pendlesham Rise the pellets were fired from a small hatchback-type car, possibly red in colour which drove past the children. The occupants are described as two or three teenage males. The driver had dark brown hair and the front seat passenger had sandy coloured hair.
Officers want to speak to anyone who was in Taverham on Tuesday afternoon and may have witnessed these incidents or seen the car, or anyone with further information.
Calls should be made to PC Steve Coe at Drayton and Taverham Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Police have confirmed that a man and a teenage boy have died after an incident at West Meadows in Ipswich yesterday afternoon.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year, an all-time record.
