A TEENAGE girl is fighting for her life after she was reportedly blasted in the chest with a sawn-off shotgun during an attack in broad daylight.

Paramedics and armed cops rushed to residential Hughes Avenue in Wolverhampton at 4.15pm yesterday after the 18-year-old was seriously hurt.

The victim was reportedly sitting in a car in a white dress when she was gunned down.

An air ambulance also landed nearby.

Forensics officers found a double-barrelled sawn-off shotgun and cartridges in a rucksack hidden in a bush.

Cops say the girl remains critically injured in hospital.

A neighbour said: “It just went mad.

“It’s just frightening what’s happened.”

And a dog-walker called the incident “horrendous”, adding: “For it to happen to a young girl like that, it’s just shocking.”
