The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Phil Cardy

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.”
