A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after reports of shooting in Ipswich earlier this week.

Armed officers arrested the 28-year-old local man at a property in Magpie Road, Norwich, on Saturday afternoon.

He has been held after police received reports on Tuesday that a man, 18, had gone to Ipswich Hospital with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

The victim was treated for injuries which were not believed to be life threatening, police said.

Officers were initially called just after 00:20 GMT on Tuesday to reports of a loud noise at Siloam Place in Ipswich.

The ambulance service then reported someone had suffered arm injuries in an attack at the address. Police attended the scene but found no-one there.

Four men, in their 20s, were arrested later that day on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and released on police bail the following day until February.

Anyone who spotted something suspicious around Siloam Place on Monday evening or in the early hours of Tuesday is being asked to contact police.
