SIX more people have been questioned after ten separate reports of airgun pellets being fired towards people or vehicles in two days earlier this year.

On February 18 and 19, ten incidents were reported in Silchester Road, Tadley, of people or property being targeted by pellets from what they believed to be an airgun.

Police have now revealed that in addition to teenage boys previously being arrested, they have identified six further suspects who have all been interviewed under caution.

A Hampshire Alert update from PCSO John Dullingham read: "We have also seized the weapon which is believed to have been used, which I hope goes some way to reassure the local community. I would like to take this opportunity to ask that anyone with relevant information contacts police on 101, quoting 44190059717. Alternatively, please contact Crimestoppers to provide information anonymously on 0800 555 111."

In the incidents, seven people reported being struck by what they believed to be airgun pellets.

Six of the victims were not seriously injured but a 16-year-old-boy had to go to hospital to have a pellet removed from the back of his head.

Another man reported a projectile moving past his head, which he believed to be an airgun pellet, and a woman reported that the rucksack she was carrying was hit.

The driver of a Mini also reported his vehicle being struck by what he believed to be an airgun pellet.
