Teen on charges of attempted murder.

A TEENAGER appeared in court today to face three charges of attempted murder.

Michael John Straker, 19, of Perry Avenue, Low Hill, Wolverhampton, appeared before Walsall magistrates charged with three counts of attempted murder and one of possession of a handgun with intent to commit an indictable offence.

The charges relate to an incident outside the Worker's Rest pub, in Upper Lichfield Street, Willenhall, at around 2am last Saturday, in which three people were injured in a double shooting and a stabbing.

Straker, dressed in a black T-shirt and black jeans, was brought before magistrates from custody.

He spoke only to confirm his name, age and address.

No application for bail was made and the case was adjourned until Saturday, July 21, where a preliminary hearing will be held at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
