Jawad Karim, 25, and Jahanzeb Mahmood have been jailed for 44 months and 40 months, respectively, after being found guilty of possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear. In June 2019, Karim pointed an imitation firearm at a man in Levenshulme, Manchester while Mahmood encouraged him to shoot, shouting: “Shoot him, shoot him, blast him, blast him.” As the victim ran to a nearby house, he heard the “clicking of metal” and believed he was going to be shot. The court heard that he has since suffered mental health difficulties, including flashbacks and nightmares.
