A man has been injured in a shooting in Nottingham.

The man was shot in the leg in what police believe was an "isolated incident" in Eversley Walk, Bestwood, on Friday at about 20:50 GMT.

The man's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Officers said they believed two black men in their 20s were involved and headed towards Hazel Hill Crescent afterwards.

It comes as a woman was shot in the arm on 3 November in the city centre.

Patrols increased

Det Insp Kim Binns said: "This appears to be an isolated incident, unconnected to any of the recent serious incidents we've seen in Nottingham and there is no wider threat to the public.

"We have a team of people working on this around the clock."

She added patrols in the area had increased.
