THREE men have been arrested in connection with an alleged attempted murder in Nuneaton on January 16.

The incident is reported to have taken place in Queen Elizabeth Road around 8.30pm when a 31-year-old man left his car and was approached by an unknown man, who pulled out a gun and aimed it at the motorist. It is not known if the gun discharged.

A 32-year-old man from Coventry was arrested in connection with the incident and a second man, aged 39, from Nuneaton, was arrested during the execution of a warrant by firearms officers. The third man aged 41 and also from Nuneaton, handed himself in to Nuneaton Police Station on the same day.

All three men were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and have since been released on conditional bail while investigations continue.

Anyone with information which could help enquiries should call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
