A 20-year-old man has been jailed for 14 years for shooting another man outside Birmingham’s Bullring shopping centre during the Boxing Day sales.

Lamar Salmon, 20, of Erdington, shot a man in the leg outside Selfridges after a row on 26 December 2010.

Mr Salmon was found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm at Birmingham Crown Court on Wednesday.

He was also found guilty of possessing a gun with intent to endanger life.

Police said that Salmon, of Abbeyfield Road, opened fire with a handgun, shooting the 21-year-old victim in the thigh with a .38 calibre bullet “which exited at the top of his hamstring and narrowly missed a main artery”.
