POLICE have revealed a clubber who was fatally injured at an Ipswich nightclub died of a gunshot wound - and not from a stab wound as first thought.

Jimoh Plunkett, from south London, was found lying on the ground outside the Zest club in Princes Street at about 2.15am on Saturday. He was taken to Ipswich Hospital, where he later died.

Police first thought the 24-year-old had suffered a single stab wound to the chest but today they revealed he was shot.

Three other men were also shot inside Zest on the same night. One suffered injuries to his shoulder, backside and leg, another suffered a leg injury while the third suffered a gun shot wound to the hand.
