The car was driven towards the Gigmill pub on South Road in Norton, Stourbridge, injuring a man and three women at around 10pm on Friday.

The driver of the silver Volvo is understood to have got out of the vehicle and fired shots from a BB gun, hitting the man in the leg causing a minor injury.

He then drove the car towards a group standing on steps outside the pub before fleeing the scene and has still not been found.
