Police say they have stepped up patrols in Arnold following a ‘firearms discharge’ over the weekend.
A man is believed to have fired a shotgun toward the driver of a vehicle in Roundwood Road, at 11.45am on Saturday (8) 2019.
There was no apparent damage or injuries as a result of the incident.
The scene has been forensically examined and officers have carried out house-to-house enquires and viewed CCTV footage in the area as enquiries continue to establish the circumstances.
Detective Inspector Steve Wragg, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Clearly this has been a distressing incident for people in the area as it is very unusual in this neighbourhood but we have increased patrols and a team of detectives is working hard to identify those involved and locate the firearm used.
“The incident is thought to have been targeted and we are keeping an open mind about whether it is linked to a recent series of firearms incidents in the city area.
“We are following up a number of lines of enquiry but I would urge anyone with information about the incident to contact us on 101 quoting incident 320 of 8 June 2019, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
