We are relentless in our pursuit of those involved in gun crime and criminals who have no regard for other people and will continue to take action to protect our communities from those intent on using firearms on our streets. Information from our communities is vital and I would urge the local community to come together to help us take a stand against the use of firearms and violence on our streets. If you saw or heard anything last night that may help us with our enquiries, please report it to us so we can take action.
