Re: Three men have been jailed after gunshots were fired through a man's bedroom window in Aberdare, Wales, UK.<br />
Oliver Pearce, 31, Ricky Webber, 29, and James Drakes, 34, drove to Windsor Street in Trecynon, south Wales, in Pearce's white BMW on 1 February.<br />
Drakes got out of the car and banged on the front door of the house before taking out a revolver and "fired four shots into the bedroom window".<br />
All three were convicted of firearms offences at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court.<br />
The judge said the reason behind the attack was "never clear" and all three were cleared of attempted murder.<br />
Two bullets were discovered lodged in the roof of the house, which had travelled through the upstairs bedroom window and the ceiling.<br />
Both Drakes, of Tylorstown, and Pearce, of Rhydyfelin pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and possessing a firearm in a public place, and were jailed for five years each.<br />
Webber, of Porth, was found guilty of possessing a firearm and ammunition in a public place, but there was no evidence he handled or used the gun, and he was sentenced to two years.
