Three hurt in air gun shootings
Three people suffered minor injuries when being shot at with air gun pellets in Gloucester.

The incidents happened in the early afternoon of Monday at the junction of London Road and Denmark Road.

A 30-year-old man was treated in hospital for wounds to his knee and elbow, a 16-year-old boy was hit in the elbow but did not need treatment.

A 19-year-old man was shot in the leg and police say medical staff have been unable to remove the pellet.

Officers are appealing for information and say it is not known whether the air weapon was fired from a vehicle or a neighbouring property.
