Residents should not feel at risk following last night's fatal shooting. I'm confident that this was an isolated incident and not a random attack.
Witnesses saw a horrific and tragic incident. A group of three men were shot at with what is believed to be a handgun and one of them was tragically killed.
This is not gang-related and as far as I am aware not linked to any other crime. I am confident that there is very low risk to the community, although I understand that this has been very upsetting and disturbing for everyone, especially those who were in the area at the time.

Walking is free and good for your health soit’s understandable that more people are doing it to get to work.
Clearly some people need to use alternative modes of transport, but even then there are easy ways to build exercise into that journey - park further away from the office or get off the bus a stop early, for instance.
Britain is facing an obesity crisis that is fuelled by inactivity. It is essential for the health of the nation that people find time to exercise and hopefully these statistics are an encouraging sign that the message is getting through.
More than 460,000 people in the South East are now choosing to walk to work instead of driving.
Our region has the highest number ofpeople walking to work with Brighton, Oxford, Isle of Wight, Reading and Portsmouth claiming the top five positions in the South.
Brighton and Hove have the highest proportion of residents who walk to work at 20.6% as opposed to Surrey who have the lowest at 6.2%.
Research from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy shows that across our region 10.9% commute on foot, slightly above the national average of 10.7%
