Motorist draws gun after accident

A mother had a gun held to her head by a motorist after their wing mirrors clipped each other, police said last night.

Shindo Kaur, 29, of Handsworth, Birmingham - who was returning from a shopping trip with her young son - had a handgun held to her head by the driver who threatened to kill her and demanded pounds 50 to pay for the damage. Mrs Kaur fled into a shop owned by a relative after motorists distracted the gunman at Regent Road, Handsworth, over the weekend. Staff handed over pounds 50 and he left. West Midlands Police described the gunman as black, aged 20 to 25, of slim to medium build with short hair.
