NEIGHBOURS have spoken of their terror after an alleged shotgun incident on their street.
People living on Victoria Road in Bagillt are in shock after the alleged incident, which happened shortly after midnight on Sunday morning.
Bob Jones, 79, a retiredsteelworker who has lived on Victoria Road for 40 years, said police at the street told him a man entered a house two doors down with a shotgun at about 12.30am on Sunday.
Mr Jones said armed police attended, and yesterday morning forensic investigators were dusting the area for fingerprints while the house was cordoned off.
He said the road was closed until around noon on Sunday.
Mr Jones said: “I was watching TV at about 12.30am and heard something in the back garden.
"Next thing my neighbour was knocking on the window saying apparently
someone had gone into a house two doors down with a shotgun.”
Mr Jones said the man living in the house ran out to get away.
“He jumped over the neighbour's fence then over our fence then let himself out onto the street through my gate,” he added.
“The police came to question us and block the house two doors down off and forensics were there dusting for fingerprints.”
Mr Jones, who lives on Victoria Road with his wife Joyce, added: “I have lived here 40 years and it is usually a very quiet area. I have never heard about anything of this
sort happen before.
“We are a bit upset.
“Most of the neighbours were out after it happened last night, but no one knew what had happened until police spoke to us. We are all in shock.”
