Live updates: 2 people shot in Enderby
There is a heavy police presence in the area

 

Two people have been shot in Enderby tonight.

There is a heavy police presence in the village, with an area closed off by police.

An area around Brockington College was cordoned off at around 7.45pm.

Residents have told LeicestershireLive that two cars were involved in a crash near the school. There was then an incident involving 10 to 12 men in Blaby Road.

 

Police force their way into a property
A witness has told LeicestershireLive a machete was found in the driveway of a home and that police have forced their way into a property.

 

Masked men with shotguns seen
We are getting some alarming reports from witnesses who say there were men in balaclavas with shotguns in the village.

We have been told a Mercedes was seen speeding around the area but drove off with its windows shot out.

 

Reports of cars 'chasing' through the village.

We're hearing more from villagers who are reporting cars chasing through the village earlier this evening and hearing bangs.

One woman has told us that a group of men were involved in a fight with baseball bats last week close to where the police are now carrying out their inquiries.

 

2 people shot

A police spokeswoman told LeicestershireLive: "Two people have been taken to hospital as a result of the gunshots being fired. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening."

Is this near the travellers site ???????

It is the travellers. The Blaby road firm are basically trying to shift travellers off of other sites across Leicestershire and Derbyshire by force. Of course it's causing a backlash on their part, including with near neighbours literally fields away (a rival clan). They are also at war with a Scottish clan. Can't really say any more than that.

There's a lot more to worry about than shotguns too, from what I know. Can't really say any more than that.

Not sure if linked but there was a video the other day going around of a bloke with a baseball bat smacking a cars window and passenger about. Possibly to do with the above?

Yeah there are things happening on a weekly basis at the moment. All comes down to the travellers.

In for a penny, in for a pound I guess. 

 

Is there a N.I. aspect to this ?

There's trouble wherever the 'travellers' appear.

Police kindly let me through the Foxhunter end of the cordon about 8.45 to drop my mum home.

Tried to get in the Bantlam Lane end but was clearly some major stuff going on.

Sad times anyway.

The second man is in his 20s and his injuries are described as neither life-threatening or life-changing. Both men remain in hospital.

Further investigations have been continuing this morning into the incident, in which a police car was badly damaged while responding to the incident.

A silver Mitsubishi with suspected bullet holes in it has been recovered in the area of Ashton Drive.

 

Detective Inspector Mark Parish said: “This is a very serious incident and we continue to carry out inquiries at the scenes to establish the full circumstances. Two men have been injured as a result of the incident with one of the men suffering serious injuries.
