Appeal To Find Car After Bristol Shooting
10th April 2016
Police are appealing for the public's help to trace a red Peugeot 206 following a serious incident in the Easton area of Bristol in which a man was shot in the shoulder.
The victim, a 34-year-old man, was shot once while he was stood outside the Jolly Roger pub in All Hallows Road at around 2am yesterday (Saturday 9 April).
He suffered a fractured shoulder and was taken to hospital for treatment. His injuries are not life-threatening or life-changing.
A full investigation was launched and last night a 29-year-old man, a 17-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. All three remain in police custody for questioning.
One of the focal points of the on-going inquiry is to locate a red Peugeot 206, registration KY02 AUH believed to have been involved in the offence.
Det Insp Simon Brickwood, of Avon and Somerset Constabulary, said: "It's vital we trace this red Peugeot 206 registration KY02 AUH and I'm appealing for anyone who has seen a car matching this description before, during or crucially after the incident, to call us as soon as possible.
"Also, if anyone was at the Jolly Roger pub in Easton on Friday night or the early hours of Saturday morning and saw any part of this incident, or has any information which could help our inquiry, please call 101 and quote reference 5216075302.
"I'd like to reassure the community that crimes involving a firearm are extremely rare and we're doing all we can to uncover what happened and bring those responsible to justice."
