Stafford Police are asking for help in tracing a number of offenders involved in a firearms incident in Stafford earlier this month.

Seven people, aged between 14 and 62 years old, were shot at and injured by unknown offenders using an automatic air soft rifle, possibly a Remake G363 Rifle in Camo Colour, firing white plastic pellets.

Several of the victims were shot in the face and one man received hospital treatment at Royal Stoke University Hospital for a facial injury.

The offenders were driving a black Vauxhall 5-door Corsa and it is believed that there were four people in the vehicle. The men were all described as white, with dark hair, aged in their late teens. The man allegedly firing the rifle, the front seat passenger in the Corsa, is described as having a ginger/brown beard.

The incident occurred between 8.15pm and 9pm on Sunday 8 October. The car initially travelled from the Silkmore Road area where a 47-year-old man was shot. It then continued up Radford Bank where a further two men, aged 54 and 62, were shot at near to the Aldi supermarket. Finally, the car made its way onto Bodmin Avenue where three 14-year-old boys and one 16-year-old boy were shot.
