2021/4/1 YorkshireLive

Adil Akksar, aged 27, has been jailed for fourteen months after pleading guilty to possessing an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence. In October last year, Akksar went to the A&E department of the Royal Infirmary in Bradford, West Yorkshire and told staff he wanted an X-ray. On being told he needed to make an appointment, Akksar pointed a gas-powered BB gun at a porter’s face, swearing and demanding an X-ray immediately. He also pointed the firearm at his own head. As the porter and other staff members locked themselves into a room, security personnel managed to disarm Akksar. Armed police officers attended, arrested Akksar and recovered a tin of ball bearings. The court heard that Akksar, a cannabis user, suffered mental health problems. The hospital porter, who had believed he was going to be shot and killed, said in a victim impact statement that he felt lucky to be alive.

Kian Harris, aged 19, has been sentenced to eighteen months' youth custody after admitting wounding, possessing cannabis oil, possessing a stun gun, possessing an item for use in forgery and four charges of possessing a Class B drug with intent to supply. In July 2019, during “a heated row” at his home in Brentry, Bristol, Harris shot his mother’s partner in the face with an air rifle. The pellet lodged near the man’s eye and had to be removed under general anaesthetic. During a subsequent search of the property, police officers recovered cannabis and cannabis products, £1,775.50 cash, a stun gun, two printers and false identity documents, as well as high value clothes and suspected fake watches and jewellery. It was later revealed that Harris had been selling fake IDs, bought from China, with just under £97,000 having been credited to his bank account in a six-month period.
