UK police confirm multiple fatalities at ‘serious firearms incident’ in Plymouth, air ambulances called to scene (VIDEO)

“We were called at 18:12 to an ongoing incident in Plymouth,” the South Western Ambulance Service tweeted on Thursday evening, adding that “a significant number of resources,” including helicopters, multiple doctors and senior paramedics were sent to the city.

Police later confirmed that a “serious firearms incident” had taken place, and that a number people were dead, with multiple others injured. Officers did not disclose specific details on the number involved, but said the incident had been contained.

Footage posted earlier to Twitter purportedly showed one victim lying under a plastic sheet on a footpath as police ushered bystanders away from the scene.

Conservative MP Johnny Mercer stated that “the incident was not terror related,” and that no suspect was “on the run” in Plymouth, while Labour MP Luke Pollard described the incident as “worrying” and urged locals to “stay indoors and follow police advice.”

UK Home Secretary Priti Patel described the shooting as “shocking,” and urged people to “remain calm, follow police advice and allow our emergency services to get on with their jobs.”
