They are trying to find out if this is linked to the shooting.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Caroline Millar, said: “Although we are still seeking suspects in connection to this incident, I would like to reassure local residents that we are not treating this as a random attack and therefore do not believe there is any threat to the wider public.

“Extensive police enquiries have been taking place since last night and we are following-up a number of leads to understand the sequence of events and to identify anyone who may be involved.

“I urge anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity at either Forum Court or Rushbrooke Lane yesterday evening to contact police as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Major Investigation Team on 101 quoting reference BU/15/2542, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The East of England Ambulance Service sent a number of resources to the scene last night including the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART).
