A POLICE crime scene is in place after a shooting in Toothill last night.

Firearms officers raced to an address on Warneford Close at around 9.40pm. Nobody was injured in the incident.

It is believed the victim and the suspects were known to each other and that this was an isolated incident.

A police cordon will remain in place at the address while investigations continue.

Detective Chief Inspector Helen Jacobs said: “We are in the very early stages of this investigation but urge anyone with any information to come forward.

“An incident like this in a residential street is a reckless and dangerous act and it is fortunate that we are not dealing with a serious tragedy as a result of these actions.

“We’d like to reassure the public that we are working tirelessly to bring those responsible to justice and there will be an increased police presence as a result."
