Party lad and stepdad shot at teen bash
A BOY aged eight and his stepdad were blasted with a shotgun at a teenager’s birthday party.
Both had stepped outside when the attacker opened fire.
The lad was hit in the arm and the 30-year-old man in the chest. One witness said yesterday: “His body looked peppered – like a dart board.”
The witness said there had been around 60 kids running around and at least five police cars at the scene outside Bilston Sports and Social Club, Wolverhampton.
Det Sgt Chris Jones said: “We don’t believe the man or his stepson were the intended targets.”
The pair were expected to be released from hospital yesterday. Detectives are reviewing CCTV.
