Officers were called to The Crescent in Hockley last night after we were told shots were fired around 7.30pm last night (21 Dec) near the junction with Goode Avenue.

We had closed the road while specialist officers carried out a forensic search and we’ve done house to house enquiries. Fortunately we have had no reports of any injuries.

Sergeant Phil Hinton, from force CID, said: “At present we don’t have a motive for the incident or who the intended target was, but we are trawling CCTV. 

“We’re appealing for witnesses or anyone who has dash cam footage and was in the area last night to make contact with us.

“There is no place for firearms on our streets and we are treating this incident very seriously.”
