Armed officers from Dorset Police have placed a street in lockdown following a shooting near to the Castlepoint Cooperative supermarket this evening. Paramedics from the South Western Ambulance and a rapid response officer have also been sent to the incident that happened around 8pm on Tuesday evening. A large area remains sealed off with cordon tape and a Police officer standing guard.


A black Mercedes remains abandoned in the middle of the road with tyres shot out. One man has been detained by armed officers wearing headgear. Witnesses described the vehicle failing to stop after armed officers were pursuing the vehicle it is understood. I heard several bangs. At first, I thought it was some sort of exercise. Then there were people in balaclavas and with guns. They were shouting ‘stop’ at the car, but it didn’t stop and kept going.
Others have claimed that there was a drugs raid and guns were used and passerby on a bike injured by a stray bullet. Its also believed a police officer was stabbed trying to stop the car earlier in the evening.

Dorset Police have been approached for a statement
