    Doesn’t sound good from friends who have posted from there. Multiple shootings heard. Still being told to stay indoors.

    A load of stuff appearing on Twitter.

    Looks gang related? Someone tried to kill someone, it backfired, so he killed his entire family?

    Everywhere it's just down as "an incident" so far. I'm trawling Twitter for something else.

    Saw the helicopter hovering earlier and can hear the sirens (location is only about a mile and a half from where I live).

    Tragic events, nothing more to say really until more info comes out, there is so much variation in the rumours it's not a good idea to repeat any of them. It's clear that something horrible has occurred though.

    Plus it can compromise the investigation. The curse of social media.

    Shooter will end up topping himself. Always happens, Ryan, Hamilton, Bird, Moat.

    Sounds like police shot him or he shot himself when legging it.

    A few are saying it’s an ex squadie

    I think I spend too long on here, one my first thoughts was I wonder what the GD regulars will post and how long the thread will be vs if it was a ‘terror’ incident. Quite why it should make a difference, I’m not so sure, but it does.
