For what it's worth, there are metal gas cylinders in some of the scene photos, maybe a couple of dozen. These items seem to suggest a CO2 powered pellet gun, not a shotgun or other powder-fired firearms. While the charges may be and should be firearms related, the chances of killing or maiming someone with a CO2 "gun" are slim to none. The large number of cylinders on the pavement suggest a full-auto airgun, and yes there is such a thing. They fire a .177 caliber BB, and may no even penetrate human skin or clothing. It's more of a toy than a weapon really, but whoever committed these assaults deserves whatever he has coming to him.

here's what the evening standard had to say...

"Horrified revellers were partying into
the early hours of Sunday morning when
what is believed to be a shotgun was
fired in a large crowd of people,
police said."

No no no...he can't do that. That's RACIST!

(gawd, I wish we had a leader like that in BC)

Neo,

The evidence on the pavement seems to eliminate the evening standard's beliefs. Unless, of course, there was a vendor at the scene dispensing large amounts of whipped cream behind the caution tape.

all i know is what i read... here's the bbc...

"They were injured with what police believe
was a shotgun with 'pellets in its rounds'
at a street party in Claremont Road at
about 02:30 BST. Police urged anyone with
information to contact them as they were
treating the attack as the attempted murder
of 10 people
."

If the police are looking for a shotgun, they are even dumber than I think.

As for you, Neo, I have read your posts and believe you posses a great deal of insight and wisdom. It seems unlikely to me that you would simply believe the media and the police reports.

I suspect that the pellets are from a pellet gun, i.e. .177. A shotgun, especially the most common 12-gauge, is a devastating weapon at close range, with the effective range dependent upon the ammunition used. If that weapon were used, one would expect fatalities, not just a few band-aids at the local ER.

It is also notable that in all the coverage, not one mention is made of the noise of a weapon.

I guess we will have to wait until or if the authorities release more information. If the actual facts of this attack are embarrassing for the police, they may never admit it.
