APPEAL AFTER CHILD SHOT WITH PELLET GUN IN REDDISH

National News

At around 4.20pm on Monday 25 June a woman was getting her two-year-old son out of his pushchair on Broadstone Hall Road South, at the junction with St Mary’s Drive, when she heard two popping sounds.

The child began to scream and the mother noticed blood on his right hand.

She assumed his hand had become trapped in the pram and quickly took him home, before deciding to take him to hospital.

As she arrived at hospital, she noticed a small metal pellet in the bottom of the pushchair.

Police now believe the child was shot with a pellet gun and are appealing for information.

PC Matthew Beaden from GMP’s Stockport Division said:
