John Forester has admitted wounding and having a firearm in a public place.  He shot a teenage girl in the leg with a pellet whilst she was staying at a campsite near Harlech, Gwynedd, in May 2009.  Forester was camping in the area with friends and had brought the .22 air rifle with telescopic sight with him.  His victim will be permanently scarred.  He was jailed for 50 weeks, suspended for 18 months.  He will undertake 250 hours unpaid work and pay £1500 compensation.  The gun was confiscated and Forester was banned from possessing any air-powered weapon for 18 months.

Two suspected armed robbers were arrested after firearms officers shot out the tyres of the car they were travelling in the centre of Birmingham, West Midlands. No one was injured and the pair was arrested before a third man was also later detained.
