Arrests following shooting in Derbyshire

Two teenagers remain in police custody after being arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a shooting in a Mackworth street last Wednesday.

A 17-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man were arrested late on Friday night (16 September) as part of a large-scale investigation into the incident. Both remain in police custody.

The investigation, which is being run by a dedicated team of detectives, relates to the shooting of a man in Ilford Drive on the evening of 14 September.

The arrests form two of several which have been made over the weekend.

An 18-year-old man who was arrested on Saturday for assisting an offender, was later bailed but has since been re-arrested and remains in custody.

A 45-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man who were arrested on Sunday have now been released on police bail.

The victim, a 32-year-old man, remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition. A second man, aged 33, suffered a cut to the head after it is believed he was assaulted nearby.

Last week three teenage boys were also arrested in connection with the incident and were bailed pending further enquiries.

Two of them, both aged 15, have since been re-arrested — with one remaining in custody and the other being released on bail.

The police activity over the course of this weekend takes the total number of arrests to twelve.

Our officers have been working closely with colleagues from the Armed Operations Unit of the National Crime Agency and people living in the area will continue to see an increased police presence as the investigation continues.
