Woman shot outside Nottingham pub

Vernon pub A 23-year-old woman remains in hospital after being shot outside the pub

A woman is recovering in hospital after she was shot outside a Nottingham pub.

Officers were called to the Vernon pub in Old Basford at about 21:30 BST on Friday.

The 23-year-old woman suffered a single gunshot wound but the injury is not thought to be life threatening, Nottinghamshire Police said.

The woman remains at the Queen's Medical Centre in a stable condition. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.

A cordon was put in place around the pub on Friday night. Most of this has since been lifted but an area near the pub's garden remains cordoned off.

Ch Insp Matthew McFarlane from Nottinghamshire Police said: "At this time we don't believe this is connected to previous incidents.

"We're investigating as to what happened last night to find the person responsible for it, arrest them and hopefully put them in prison."

Police have not yet recovered a weapon but officers are checking CCTV footage and carrying our house to house inquiries.
