Arrest after man shot in the face

A 33-year-old man is being questioned by police after a member of staff at a BP petrol station in Surrey was shot in the face.

Police said the shooting happened in Star Lane, in the village of Hooley, near Redhill, on Thursday afternoon.

The victim, who was injured by a man wielding a small black pistol, is being treated at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, West Sussex.

The injury to his left cheek was not life threatening, police said.

Police would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident at 1700 BST, or who was in the area at the time.

They have said they would particularly like to speak to the driver of a black 4x4 vehicle seen at the petrol station.

I wonder if he'll be charged with just Health and Safety violations?
