Alban Shehu, of Reynolds Road in Ipswich, was sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court yesterday for firing blanks from a pistol at around 3am on Friday, July 14, outside the Unit 17 nightclub in Cardinal Park.

The incident happened as people had been leaving the town centre nightclub.

Shehu was handed a 16 month sentence suspended for two years, and was also ordered to carry out a total of 180 hours of unpaid work.

He was also given a supervision requirement, 12 week curfew requirement and a rehabilitation order for a maximum of 25 hours.

Police cordoned off a section of Cardinal Park following the shooting, where they recovered blank shells from the area.

A grey Fiat Bravo parked outside the Harvester restaurant was found with smashed side and rear windows during the incident.
