A teenager from Suffolk has been arrested after ‘gunshots’ were reportedly heard during an argument in an Essex town.
The 18-year-old from Haverhill was one of three people to be arrested after police received reports of a disturbance in Bailey Bridge Road, Braintree, on Friday morning, November 13.
Witnesses had reported hearing an argument and what sounded like gunshots shortly after 11.40am.
Officers from Essex Police were quickly on scene, and arrested the Haverhill teenager on suspicion of firearms and drugs offences, alongside a 19-year-old and 45-year-old, both from Braintree.
All three remain in police custody.
An Essex Police spokesman said it is believed to have been a targeted incident and that enquiries are ongoing.
