Main article content
We have arrested two men, aged 17 and 18 years, following two reported incidents in Stamford on Wednesday 29 November.
Two reports were received between 5pm and 10pm on 29 November, that members of the public had been hurt after being struck by pellets which had been fired from some sort of weapon, by occupants of a red vehicle as they drove by. No serious injuries were reported. The incidents are reported as happening in and around the centre of Stamford.
We are appealing to anyone who witnessed these incidents or anyone who may have also been hit by pellets in a similar manner, in Stamford, to get in touch with the investigating officer.
Inquiries led officers to stop a red vehicle on Thursday 30 November, and recovered an X-shot hyper gel gun and pellets. The two men who were arrested have been released under investigation while our inquiries continue.
Anyone who has any information that can assist is asked to email [email protected], or call 07919299079. Please quote incident 445 of 29 November.
