A woman who was shot in the arm outside a bar was not the intended target, police have said.

She was injured following reports a man fired shots outside Das Kino in Fletcher Gate, Nottingham, before riding off on a moped on Saturday.

The woman, 24, was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after police were called at 22:20 GMT.

A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Police believe it was a "targeted attack" but the woman, who has since been discharged from hospital, was not the target.

Assistant Chief Constable Kate Meynell said: "There is no place in Nottinghamshire for violence and particularly violence which threatens the lives of innocent people."

Police asked anyone with information to get in touch.
