A 40-year-old suspect was arrested for charges relating to illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition after a shooting incident was reported on Sunday 19 January.

The police were patrolling Alpha Way shortly after the shooting in Leo Road when they spotted three suspicious men wearing clothing matching the description of suspects in the shooting. Police approached the three men, who then fled.

One man was caught and found to be in possession of a Ruger Magnum revolver containing four live rounds of ammunition as well as two spent cartridges. This means that two rounds had just been fired from the revolver.
