The 21 year old injured man was taken to hospital for treatment. He is said to be in a stable condition.

It happened around 10pm on Monday December 10. Two men fled the scene but were later arrested. They remain in police custody.

There is a cordon in place in the area, whilst police continue to conduct their enquiries, including forensic examination of the scene and CCTV enquiries.

Any firearms incident will cause some concern in our local communities, but I would like to reassure members of the public that we take these incidents extremely seriously and have two males currently in custody in relation to this.

I would encourage anyone who witnessed anything in the area last night to come forward and speak to the police to assist with our enquiries.

We will be conducting high visibility patrols in the area throughout today to reassure the public and officers from the Homicide and Major Enquiry team are conducting enquiries today to establish the circumstances of the incident.”

– Detective Inspector Mark Atkinson of the Firearms Prevent Team
