FOUR arrests have been made in connection with a shooting at a pub on the edge of the Dispatch district.

A 23-year-old woman was found with a gunshot wound in the beer garden at the Vernon on Vernon Road, Old Basford at about 9.30 pm on Friday August 17.

Her injuries were not life-threatening and she has been recovering at home after being treated at the Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham.

A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and a 38-year-old man on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

A 20-year-old woman was detained on suspicion of assisting an offender. All three were questioned by detectives and bailed until December, pending further inquiries.

A man aged 23 was also arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. He remains in custody for questioning about a separate allegation of being concerned in the supply of class A and B drugs.

The pub has since been closed down and its windows are currently covered with metal shutters.

Anyone with information who has not already been spoken to by the police should telephone Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or call the free and confidential Crimestoppers hotline on 0800 555111.
