Attempted murder investigation following Luton shooting

24 Sep 2021

Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a man suffered gunshot wounds in an incident in Luton yesterday (Thursday).

Emergency services were called to reports of a shooting in St Mildred’s Avenue at approximately 5.20pm and a 19-year old man was taken to hospital with serious injuries, which are no longer believed to be life-threatening.

A black Audi was seen leaving the scene shortly after the incident.

Detective Inspector Mark Butler, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “At this stage we believe this was an isolated incident and we will continue to have increased presence in the area for community reassurance.

“We are doing all we can, but we would encourage anyone who hasn’t yet come forward to contact us as a matter of urgency.

“We are especially keen to ask people who live, or were travelling in the area, to check their CCTV and dashcam footage to see if it captured the described vehicle or anything else which may assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact us by visiting our online reporting centre or by calling 101 and quote Operation Bassett.
