Detective Chief Inspector James Riccio said: “We’re treating this incident very seriously and a team of officers and police staff have worked throughout the night to find those involved.
“As part of our inquiry we’re keen to talk to anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have information about it who hasn’t yet spoken to police.
“We’d also appeal to anyone who has footage or images of yesterday’s events to share them with us.”
He added: “While we believe this is an isolated incident involving people known to each other we appreciate the worry this may cause the community.
“Incidents involving firearms are thankfully extremely rare in Avon and Somerset but should anyone feel concerned about last night’s disorder, I’d encourage them to speak to their local neighbourhood team.”
