Man charged over Coventry pub shooting in 1996

A man has been charged over a shooting at a pub in Coventry in 1996.

Anthony Stephens, who used to live on Craneberry Road in Tile Cross, was arrested in November last year after getting off a plane from Ireland at Birmingham Airport.

The 46-year-old answered bail on Saturday (July 5) and was charged with attempted murder in connection with a shooting at The Plough, a pub in Coventry on 20 October 1996.

The victim was shot in the face but made what doctors described as a 'miraculous' recovery.

Stephens is due this morning at Coventry Magistrates.

Man shot whilst cradling baby

A man from north Worcestershire has been shot whilst holding his six-day-old baby girl.

Police say the man from Hollywood was shot in the foot after two shots were fired through a window last Thursday.

Jon Marsden, Detective Chief Inspector of West Mercia Police, said:

"We do not know if the offender was aware of the baby but we hope that by revealing these details, anyone who may have been reluctant to come forward with information will realise the clear potential for a tragedy and understand that it is imperative we find whoever was responsible."

Police believe the address where the shooting took place was targeted and have increased their presence in the area.
