"I heard a really loud noise, like a gun shot. When I popped out there was a white van parked there and a guy was collapsing on the floor. He had blood around his leg area.

I had customers so I had to go back in. I saw a lot of people gathering together but no one was ringing anyone so I had to ring the cops. I rang 999 and told them everything and they came round after that.

Police sealed off the street and area appealing for witnesses to come forward.
