Suffolk shooting: Teen arrested after 15-year-old boy shot

A teenage boy has been arrested after a 15-year-old boy was shot near a school in Kesgrave, in Suffolk.

The teenage victim suffered “serious” injuries and was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, Suffolk Police said.

A police statement said officers were called just after 8.40am on Monday to reports of a shooting in Friends Walk, near Kesgrave High School.

A teenage boy has been taken into police custody for questioning.

Suffolk Police assistant chief constable Rob Jones said: “Following this serious incident our priority is to keep everyone safe.

“We have now made an arrest as part of the investigation and are working with our partners in Suffolk and our schools to ensure that everyone feels safe when they are collecting their children from school this afternoon.

“There will be more police officers on patrol and to provide reassurance in the area and I would ask for anyone with information about this incident to come forward.”
