Shots fired on Pimlico estate

16:11 28 February 2013

Two men have been arrested after shots were fired on an estate in Pimlico.

Police were called at around 2.20pm yesterday following reports of the shots near Marsh House on the Tachbrook Estate.

No one was found injured.

A dark coloured Volkswagen Golf seen leaving the scene at speed was stopped by officers, and was found to have sustained what is believed to be ballistic damage.

The two male occupants of the car, both aged 23, were arrested. They have both since been bailed to a date in late April pending further inquiries.

Witness inquiries suggest two suspects, both black males wearing hooded tops, may have left the scene on pushbikes.

Officers from the Trident Gang Command are investigating.

Anyone with any information call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
