Shooting: Did you see anything suspicious in your area last night?

Alert message sent 10/11/2018 10:30:00

Information sent on behalf of Notts Police

We're investigating after a man suffered non-life threatening or altering injuries after being shot in Bestwood Park.

We were called to reports that a man had been shot in the leg at around 8.50pm yesterday (Friday 9 November 2018) in the Eversley Walk area.

Enquiries are ongoing but detectives are appealing to anyone with any information that could help, to contact us on 101 quoting incident 892 of 9 November.

Detective Inspector Kim Binns said: "We believe two black men in their 20s were involved and following the incident have headed in the direction Hazel Hill Crescent. So if anyone saw anyone acting suspiciously or perhaps a vehicle waiting in the area then please get in touch.

"This appears to be an isolated incident, unconnected to any of the recent serious incidents we've seen in Nottingham and there is no wider threat to the public. We have a team of people working on this around the clock. We also have increased patrols in the area so if anyone feels concerned and wants to speak to one of our officers, please stop them in the street."

Anyone with any information can contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 892 of 9 November. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
