Shots fired in Southampton, say police

Gunshots have been fired in the parking lot area of Southampton Rangers Sports Club, police said this morning.

It does not appear that anyone was injured.

Police said they received several 911 calls at around midnight of shots fired in the South Road area of Southampton.

“Upon police arrival, it was forensically confirmed that a firearm was discharged in the parking lot area of Southampton Rangers Sports Club,” a spokesman said.

He added that police had started an investigation and wanted to speak to anyone who may have seen two males on a motorcycle, wearing dark coluored helmets, leaving the scene in a westerly direction.
