A major investigation has been launched after it’s believed a man was shot in the back in Bulwell.
Officers from Nottinghamshire Police were called to Spindle Gardens just before 1am today (21 November).
A 25-year-old man was taken to hospital with what is thought to be life-altering injuries. His family have been informed.
Detective Inspector Jonathon Naylor, said: “Any incident which potentially involves a firearm is treated incredibly seriously and we have a large number of resources looking for those responsible.
“We have been working hard on this case through the night and have numerous enquiries to continue with.
“Early investigations suggest this was a targeted attack and we don’t believe there is a wider threat to the public but we retain an open mind.
“We will be increasing police patrols over the next few days so people can speak to us about what happened and we will be visiting homes nearby.
“It’s a large residential area so we know that people will have concerns and they also might have seen or heard something that could help.”
