Four people arrested after a shooting in Southampton have been released on bail. Unemployed 23-year-old Jamal Jones died from gunshot wounds after being fired upon at a property in St Mary Street, Southampton, on Saturday April 20th.
A 36-year-old woman and three men aged 41, 21 and 18, all from Southampton, have been bailed pending further inquiries until June 11. Detectives have sought to reassure the local community by saying they believe the incident was isolated and related to the criminal activity of those involved.
