Teenager shot in head by an air rifle

Wednesday, 27th November 2013.

Police in Haverhill are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was struck on the head by a projectile, believed to have been a pellet from an air rifle.

The incident occurred at around 9.10pm Friday, November 22, along a footpath between Leiston Road and Leather Lane.

The victim, a 17-year-old boy, was walking along the path when he was hit on the top of the head by an unknown object, resulting in him sustaining a small cut.

It is believed the object came from the direction of the shops on Leiston Road and the victim heard the sound of a low thud, consistent with that made by an air rifle.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact PC Guy Ainsworth at Haverhill Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
