A short time later, at around 9pm, a number of armed officers raced to an address in Godolphin Close, Freshbrook; a 17-year-old boy was arrested at the property.
“A 17-year-old male has been arrested on suspicion of attempted GBH and was taken to Gablecross police station where he remains in custody. Enquiries are ongoing.”
