Teenager points loaded handgun at man before he’s chased through busy shopping centre by armed police

This is the moment a teenager pulls out a loaded handgun and threatens a man before he’s chased by armed police through a busy Birmingham city centre.

Dramatic video shows Nikye Thomas, 19, grappling with a man over a small bag on 24 June. He then brazenly pulls out a gun, leading the other man to flee.

Police are alerted and a chase through the city follows. CCTV shows the teen dropping the gun in Burlington Arcade.

Officers continued to sprint after him into Birmingham New Street, where an officer takes him down and arrests him with the help of an off-duty officer.

Thomas has been jailed for five years.
