Local residents have described their shock following an alleged axe and knife attack at a pub which left one man dead and several others injured.
One local, who came home after 2am to see the police activity, told the Western Morning News that the incident was "not the sort of stuff you expect in Tamerton".
Another added: "It’s a very close community and everyone says hello to each other and stops to chat. It’s a big shock.”
Phil Edmonds, who has lived in the area for a while, told the BBC: "This is such a lovely little village, it is really shocking, I was gobsmacked really."
Police have confirmed that an axe has been recovered from the scene of a fatal attack in a Plymouth pub.
A knife, which was also reportedly used in the incident at The Kings Arms pub in the early hours of Thursday, has still not been located, Devon and Cornwall Police added.
We are asking local residents to keep an eye out for anything discarded in their bins or gardens that seems suspicious and to call police if anything is found.
