A MAN has been charged following a shooting outside a pub at the weekend.

Last Friday, just before 10pm, outside the Red Lion pub on High Street, Wath, officers responded to reports of a firearms discharge.

It is believed that a group of men attended the area and shots were fired outside the pub. A 55-year-old woman was taken to hospital with serious leg injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.

Oliver Corney, 34, of Cricket Inn Road, has been charged with section 18 assault and Section 16 of the Firearms act. He has been remanded in police custody and will appear before Sheffield Magistrates’ Court today.

A 20-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm and a second man, aged 23, was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm, harassment, failure to appear and breach of bail conditions. They have both been released on police bail pending further investigation.
