Witnesses sought following firearms incident in Bath

Two police officers walk in a park

We are appealing for witnesses after a firearm was discharged outside a Bath address.

Officers are investigating after a handgun was used outside a property in Snowhill at around 11pm on Friday 6 January.

A car was also damaged at the same location the following day. We believe these incidents are linked.

Neighbourhood policing Chief Inspector Ronald Lungu said: “Thankfully, no one was injured during either incident, but we have increased high-visibility patrols in the area as a precaution and to provide reassurance to the community.

“We would like to speak to anyone who was in the area and may have seen or heard anything suspicious that evening.”

If you have any information or may have CCTV or doorbell footage from around the area, please contact 101 and quote reference 5223004403.

If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5223004403, or complete our online appeals form.

You can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their Anonymous Online Form.

No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
