It has shocked and saddened a community - but how did the Kesgrave shooting and subsequent police investigation unfold?
Police were first called to the shooting, in Friends Walk, around 8.40am Monday, September 7, after receiving reports the boy had been shot on his walk to school.
A huge emergency services response followed, with armed police swooping on the estate alongside paramedics and the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance.
The boy was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge at 10am, where he remains in a critical condition.
Less than one hour later, at 10.55am, police cordoned off Westwood Avenue in Ipswich, where a 15-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is due to appear before Norwich Magistrates’ Court today.
The cordons in Friends Walk and Westwood Avenue have since been lifted, although a police presence is expected to remain around Kesgrave High School for the coming days.
