Firearms officers were sent to an address in Toothill after a reported shooting on Saturday evening - 9 October.

A force spokesperson said the officers were sent to Warneford Close at about 9.40pm, and that nobody was injured in the incident.

It is believed that the victim and the suspects were known to each other and that this was an isolated incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Helen Jacobs said: “We are in the very early stages of this investigation but urge anyone with any information to come forward.

“An incident like this in a residential street is a reckless and dangerous act and it is fortunate that we are not dealing with a serious tragedy as a result of these actions.

“We’d like to reassure the public that we are working tirelessly to bring those responsible to justice and there will be an increased police presence as a result.”
