Gun fired at house in broad daylight

Police have started an investigation after a gun was fired at a house in Keresley End in broad daylight.

Officers from the Warwickshire force were called to Howat Road at At 5.25pm yesterday (Saturday, 17 March).

They found a shotgun had been fired, breaking a window. The incident is thought to have happened at approximately 4.10pm.

Detective Inspector Tim Sharp said: "I can confirm we are investigating a shotgun discharge in Howat Road, Keresley End, Coventry. We have had no reports of injuries and no reports of damage to surrounding properties.

"Thankfully no-one was hurt, but this incident could have ended with devastating consequences. If someone has been brazen enough to fire a shotgun in the afternoon on a residential street, we need to find them urgently.

"I would like to appeal to anyone who saw a blue Audi S1 in the area at the time to come forward. We know neighbours and the wider community will understandably be extremely concerned and there will be additional police patrols in the area, please speak to these officers if you have any concerns.

"Anyone with any information which could help the investigation is urged to come forward, we need to find this individual and the firearm, so please do the right thing and come forward either to police directly on 101 quoting incident 344 of 17 March, or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
