An England supporter allegedly shot a man with an air gun during a row after yesterday’s Scotland match before driving straight into a busy pub.
Police say a silver Volvo charged towards a group standing on the steps of the Gigmill pub in Norton, Stourbridge, at around 10pm.
It came right after England and Scotland’s 0-0 draw in their Euro 2020 showdown at Wembley.
The man, who was shot in the leg, and a woman, who was six months pregnant were taken to hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Two other women were also treated in hospital for less serious injuries, West Midlands Police said.
A source told the Sun: ‘The guy lost the plot after the match.

‘It all kicked off. He had a massive row and all hell broke lose. He lost it and started firing shots and then just drove at a group of people.’
Now officers are on the hunt for the culprit, who was said to have sped away from the scene right after.
Detective Sergeant Paul Jeffs said: ‘This is a serious incident involving both a firearm and a vehicle and four people have been injured.
‘We believe that this was a targeted attack and quick-time investigations are being carried out to establish the whereabouts of the driver of the Volvo.
‘We would ask anyone who has any information or dash cam from around the time of the incident, and who has not already spoken with officers, to get in touch.’
