Girl, 11, Shot As She Queued For Ice Cream


A girl has been shot in the shoulder with an air weapon in a "despicable attack" as she queued at an ice cream van.

The 11-year-old and her 15-year-old sister were talking to the ice cream seller when a gang of youths approached in Huyton, Merseyside.

One of the youths pulled out the weapon and fired at the girl before he rode off on his bike.

The rest of the gang also fled the area.

The victim's sister then ran home to alert her parents who contacted the emergency services.

The 11-year-old was taken to hospital to be treated for her injuries, which are not believed to be serious.

Police have appealed for witnesses to the incident in Lordens Road at about 9.30pm on Friday.

Merseyside Police Superintendent John Myles said: "This was a despicable attack on an 11-year-old girl who had gone to buy an ice cream.

"The illegal use of air weapons is completely unacceptable and we will act quickly on any information from the community to suggest that air weapons are being misused."

Forensic examinations were carried out at the scene and house-to-house inquiries are under way.

The offender is described as male, white, 16 to 17 years old, approximately 5ft 2in with a heavy build.

He was wearing a black jacket, black tracksuit bottoms, hat and a scarf hiding his face.

:: Merseyside Police has urged anyone with information in relation to the incident to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

I'd happily chain him to the back of my car and do some high speed off-roading. smile At least try it without the scarf covering your bony, ratlike cunting face.

There was a 12 year old kid firing an air pistol at some old man where I live yesterday. They don't seem to realise how serious an offence this is.

Without a doubt this is a despicable act but I have a feeling that there is more to this than we are hearing.

11-year-old girl recovering after being shot while buying an ice-cream

THE FAMILY of the 11-year-old girl shot while buying an ice-cream have been left "frightened and upset", police said today.

A gunman shot and wounded the girl close to her home as she chatted to an ice-cream man with her older sister.

She was rushed to Alder Hey Children's Hospital where medics treated her injured shoulder.

Detective Chief Inspector Chris Green said today: "I've seen her this morning and she's frightened, upset and now just recovering slowly from what's an ordeal for any 11-year-old child.

"Her sister, a 15-year-old girl, is shocked and upset and frightened - the family are all shocked and upset and frightened. They all live and

work and go to school in the area. This is a community and this has happened within their community.

The sisters were buying ice-cream on Lordens Road, Huyton, at around 9.30pm on Friday night when the victim spotted a gang of around a dozen youths standing nearby.

Shortly after, one of them peddled towards her on a mountain bike and indiscriminately shot her with an air-gun.

The gang then melted away leaving her older sister to run and raise the alarm.

The gunman covered his face with a scarf in what DCI Green described as a "cowardly" and "despicable" crime.

He said the two girls will be interviewed today by specially-trained officers, but added: "There's nothing to suggest that these young girls have done anything to bring attention to them or to provoke an assault."

He said a number of witnesses have come forward and his team is responding to some "positive lines of enquiry.

He continued: "Clearly the consequences of discharging [an air gun] -especially at someone - could be horrific. We treat it very seriously.

"One of my appeals would be to the community - this isn't right, that an 11-year-old girl should be injured by an air-gun.

"I would appeal to the consciences of the 10 or 12 youths who were in the group and their parents, brothers or sisters - because this is being talked about - to provide us with information about who was there and who did what.

The offender is described as a white boy, 16 to 17-years-old and around 5ft 2in tall with a heavy build.

He was wearing a short black jacket, black tracksuit bottoms, hat and covered his face with a scarf.

Anyone with information should call the Merseyside Police incident room on 0151 777 6565 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
