"The incident has made me concerned - it is just something we don't expect."

Police were called to Carsic Road on Saturday, October 20 at around 7,15pm after receiving reports of a potential firearm incident in the area.

Residents have said a section of the road from its junction with Carsic Lane and Brierly Road was taped off by police.

A Brierly Road resident said: "The bottom of my street was blocked off, I have lived on the estate for 40 years and I have never known anything this bad happen - if it was in fact a gun shot.

"I just hope they find the person responsible - you just don't know where they could be."

One Carsic Road resident whose house looks onto the area which police had cordoned off said: "I didn't hear anything but I saw the crime scene - there were several police cars and police officers were walking up and down the street with flashlights looking for something."
