Police investigating a rush-hour shooting in Luton says it appears the victim and the gunman knew each other.
Superintendent Dave Boyle of Bedfordshire Police said: “This would appear to be a targeted incident involving people who know each other. We take firearms related crime extremely seriously and will not tolerate guns in our towns."
He added: "The fact that a gun has been discharged in such an open and public arena causes us great concern and we have responded quickly with our own armed officers. If anyone has information about this incident please contact the police in confidence as a matter of urgency."
Police say a £1,000 reward is available to anyone that can provide information that leads to the arrest and conviction of people for gun crime.
