The sound of gunfire rang out in the city after police raided the suspected Dead Mans Hand Base. Karen’s Bed and Breakfast, the site on which Journalist Leanne Sharp was attacked was raided in the early hours of the morning after her discovery.
The site is believed to have been a base of operations for the gang and that by raiding the place and removing the offenders within, the gang’s operations will have been badly damaged.
The police have not released any reports in regard to casualties at this time, but the gunfire appeared to have come from both sides and the area has been cordoned off while investigations are ongoing.
Locals have felt that this raid, although dangerous was needed and that they hope that the streets become a little safer and the damage the gangs did to the area will recover.
We shall keep you informed of any further updates as they happen.
