The terrifying moment gunman strolled past children's play area - Telegraph "Armed police rushed to the leafy street in picturesque Much Wenlock, Shrops., at 4pm on Easter Sunday after two officers were threatened by the man. After aiming the weapon at police he walked down the road "cool as a cucumber" in broad daylight smoking a cigarette while brandishing the firearm as children ran into their homes. He then attempted to force his way into what is believed to be a current serving policeman's former home before trained marksmen fired a shot in his direction - which missed." Not deliberately copper bashing, but it is the second time in as many weeks as AFOs have taken shots and missed. "A police dog was then released which tackled the gunman so that officers could make an arrest." Should we train police marksmen to a higher standard or just accept that the odd loose round is going to happen?
