Two Charged After Shooting Of One-Year-Old Baby With Air-Gun
In Bristol U.K, 2 people have been charged after the shooting of a one-year-old baby boy, Harry Studley.
Police were called to a flat in Bishport Avenue in Hartcliffe, on Friday afternoon, where the baby was shot in the head with an air rifle.
Harry Studley is in a critical condition with a serious head injury in Bristol Children’s Hospital.
Jordan Walters (24) and Emma Jane Horseman (23) of Bishport Avenue, have been charged with causing grievous bodily harm in relation to the incident and remain in custody until their court appearance in Bristol Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
Harry’s parents, Amy Allen and Edward Studley, said in a statement issued through the police:
“We very much appreciate the help and support of our family, friends and local community at this very difficult time.”
“We are concentrating our focus on our son Harry’s recovery and would appreciate if we could have our privacy respected in order to allow us to do so.”
Police have confirmed that the incident is being treated as a potentially negligent act.
A police spokesperson said:
“We believe the child received the severe injury from one pellet discharged from an air weapon. Our focus is very much on unravelling the full circumstances leading up to this tragedy. We’re not looking for anyone else in connection with what happened and at the time we are treating this as a potentially negligent act.”
