Detective Inspector Justine Wilson said: “We are saddened by this incident and our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this time. We currently have a full team who will work around the clock to uncover who’s responsible for this despicable crime.

“We believe this is an isolated attack, unconnected to recent incidents in other areas and there is no further threat to the wider public.

We, like the community we serve, believe there is no place for weapons on our streets and are doing everything we can to put a stop to it.”
