Shots Reported Fired in Tithe Farm Road

A police unit were in Tithe Farm Road this afternoon looking for further clues following an incident last night.

At about 8.30pm two rival groups are thought to have had an encounter during which time a gun may have been fired. Police attended the scene last night, and cordoned off the area for about an hour.

Neighbours to the shop at the junction with Leaf Road this afternoon said they heard noises "like a car back-firing", and another said "we heard several shots".

A spokesperson for Bedfordshire Police later said: “We were called to reports of shots being fired in Tithe Farm Road. “Officers attended and found an altercation had taken place between a group of men, who attempted to steal the watch and phone of another man. “An investigation into the incident has so far found no evidence of shots being fired. “The victim of the attempted robbery was not shot at but was assaulted during the altercation and sustained minor injuries.”

If anyone has further information they would like to share with police, please call 101.
