A small section of the school car park has also been sealed off with police tape.

Eye witnesses have told BBC 3CR they saw a crowd of people arguing and fighting before the shooting.

One told the BBC gunshots were heard coming from a car.

The eyewitness said: "Yeah, we just literally came out, saw a load of crowd, fireworks going off in front of vehicles and then two cars pulled up and then the first car must have pulled his window down and the gunshot just went.

"And we were literally standing there - they're ducking, some of them were running."
