This morning Court 1 at Bristol Crown Court heard from witness Isabel Brant. She told the court she was walking along Stapleton Road with her boyfriend when she heard gunfire.

I heard a couple of loud bangs and saw a man in the middle of the road with a gun. It was a small handgun. I saw sparks coming from it and there were bullets pinging off the road"She then told the court she felt something hit the back of her leg.It was when I saw my boyfriends face drop and turn white that I realised I'd been shot. The bullet went in the back of my knee and I could see it poking out the front
