Man shot twice with BB gun

Three suspects were arrested after a man was shot twice with a BB gun.

The victim was attacked after an argument broke out at a house in Conway Road, Carlton, on Tuesday evening.

He managed to flee the property and call for an ambulance after being kicked, punched and shot with the imitation firearm.

Paramedics took him to Queen’s Medical Centre where he was treated for bruising and two pellet wounds in his back.

Police were called and officers attended the house where the incident was reported to have taken place.

They could see people inside but they wouldn’t answer the door and so the officers forced entry.

Inside were three males – a 40-year-old man and two 15-year-old boys – and all three were arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

A BB gun was also seized from the address.

The three suspects were taken into custody for questioning and have since been granted conditional bail while the investigation continues.

Sergeant Karl Wilson said: “Three suspects have been questioned in connection with this incident and a detailed investigation into this matter is continuing.

“These arrests serve as a reminder that violence and the use of weapons will not be tolerated in Nottinghamshire and we will continue to take robust action against those who commit such offences.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to call 101 quoting incident 660 of 10 May 2022. Alternatively call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
