Boy shot at club party
A BOY of eight and his stepfather were blasted with a shotgun at a teenager’s birthday party.
The pair had stepped outside at Bilston Sports and Social Club in Bilston, near Wolverhampton, when shots were fired.
The man, 30, was hit in the chest and the boy in the arm at 11pm on Friday.
Police said they were not believed to have been the targets, adding: “We’re trying establish the motive.”
They were expected to leave hospital yesterday.
One witness said: “I heard the shots and saw police. There was up to 60 kids running around.
“I saw the shot guy, he looked like a dartboard, his body was peppered. There must have been about eight unmarked cars which were armed response.”
