A man is being treated in hospital for a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

The incident happened at about 00:20 GMT after reports of a disturbance at a house in Ipswich.

Much of the area around Silsoe Place remains cordoned off on Tuesday morning while a police investigation gets under way.

Four men are being questioned on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and possession of controlled drugs with intent to supply.

They were arrested in Ipswich shortly after 03:00 GMT.

The victim, who is not local, has undergone surgery overnight. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
