The injured man was taken to hospital for treatment and released the next morning. The following day, Thursday 28 July, three men aged 20, 24, and 28 years were arrested in connection with the incident. They were arrested on suspicion of assault GBH and possession of an unlicensed firearm.

The charges come in the wake of several reports of people hearing gun shots fired in and around the area last week.
