A third man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a shooting near a pub in Newport.

Two people were hurt when pellets were shot from one car causing another vehicle to crash near the Cross Hands pub on Chepstow Road on Tuesday.

The man, 24, was arrested on Sunday as police continue to question another man, 22. Another man has been bailed.

Gwent Police said they were still looking for the firearm used in the incident.

Earlier a 24-year-old man was bailed after questioning.

One man suffered a head injury as a result of the pellets being fired, while another man had minor injuries from the crash.

Both were in the car that crashed along with a woman who hurt her back.

Two men aged 22 and 24 from Cardiff have been bailed on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs.

Police are still looking for a dark coloured 4x4 vehicle seen driving along Chepstow Road and on to Beechwood Road at the time of the incident at 23:30 BST.

The force appealed for anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident or who has information to call 101.
