Party lad and step­dad shot at teen bash

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY PHIL CARDY

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.
