A 22-year-old Nottingham man has been jailed for 20 months after pleading guilty to possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
He also received an additional 24 weeks for breach of a suspended sentence.
Kane Hatfield of Meredith Court appeared at Nottingham Crown Court today (22nd July 2019) for sentencing.
On 22 April 2019, Hatfield discharged a firearm at Meredith Court in Stapleford three times.
He originally stated that he been shot at, but following review of local CCTV, he was found in possession of a firearm. Detective Constable Ryan Atkin said: “I hope the sentence sends a clear message that gun crime will not be tolerated in Nottinghamshire and we do everything in our powers to bring those involved to justice.
“No-one was injured but clearly discharging a firearm in public is a hugely reckless act and one that could have consequences.”
