A group of three teenage friends were attacked as they sat on a wall outside East Norfolk Sixth Form College on Wednesday, October 17.

Police are appealing for information after a paintball gun was fired at them from a moving car.

The group of friends, including a 19-year-old man, an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy, were sitting on the wall outside the college on Church Lane, Gorleston, at about 1.20pm.

A black hatchback car, possibly a Vauxhall Corsa or similar, drove past along Church Lane towards Crab Lane with someone inside taking aim from a front window, hitting the friends with paintball pellets.

All three of the group were struck, with the 19-year-old suffering an injury to the bridge of his nose.

It is thought there were two men inside the car, and police are urgently seeking them or information about them.

Anyone who saw the shooting or who has any information about the vehicle or its occupants is asked to call PC Linzi Clarke at Gorleston on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
