Shot Fired In Pub Car Park

Police are appealing for witnesses after a gun was fired at a man in a Coventry pub car park.

The man had just parked at The Cheylesmore in Daventry Road on Sunday at 8pm when a shot was fired in his direction.

Three men pulled up in a stolen green Mitsubishi Shogun. The man sitting in the front passenger seat loosed off a shot through the open window.

The man was not hit by a bullet and no-one else was in the car park at the time.

Police later found the car, which had been stolen in Warwickshire, abandoned in Spring Close, Hillfields.

They are mystified as to the reason for the attack and are appealing for any witnesses who saw the incident or the men before or after the shooting to come forward.

A spokesman said:

“The motive for the shot being fired is unclear. The man who had just got of his car had not exchanged any words with the three men in the Shogun.

“It is unclear what type of firearm was used.”

Anyone with information should call Fletchampstead police station on 024 7653 9030.
