Police were called at 1.30am last Tuesday (November 1) to reports of a large-scale disturbance in Dallow Road in which shots were fired.

Officers attended and one man was found to have suffered a gunshot wound. He was treated at hospital for serious injuries which were not life-threatening.

Bedfordshire Police have been conducting house-to-house enquiries in the area.

Sgt Mark Pugh from the force’s Operation Boson team, which deals with gun-related criminality, said: “We appreciate this is a highly-concerning incident for the community in and around Dallow Road. As a result of the incident we understand people will feel unsettled and so would reassure them that we believe the shooting to be an isolated incident contained within a party or gathering which was taking place at the time, and do not perceive there to be any wider risk to the public.

“We are thoroughly investigating this incident and are carrying out a number of enquiries in order to establish the exact circumstances, and most importantly to trace those involved.

“I would urge anyone with any information about the party, or the shooting itself, to contact me on 101.”
