A fourth man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a firearms incident in Oxford Street earlier this month.

Police have arrested a 29-year-old man from Rugby on suspicion of attempted murder and wounding following the incident on March 17.

Last week, a 30-year-old man, a 27-year-old man and a 20-year-old man, all from Rugby were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

All four men have been bailed until the end of April while investigations continue.

Police and ambulance crews were called to a house in the town street just before 9pm on March 17 after reports that two people had been injured.

A 17-year-old male was taken to hospital after being injured with a firearm, and an 18-year-old man was treated for knife wounds following an attack. Officers are continuing to appeal for witnesses and anyone with information which may help police can contact Crimestoppers, or Warwickshire Police on 101.
