Armed police sent to firearms incident near Plymouth pub
Armed police swooped on a car park behind a Plymouth pub last night after a member of the public reported premises being shot at with a handgun.
Firearms trained police officers were dispatched to the car park behind the Noah's Ark pub in Courtney Street just before 8pm after reports of a group of youths with a weapon - firing at a nearby shop.
A police spokesman said: "A police firearms unit immediately responded and located a group of five youths in the city centre."
The youths were tracked by CCTV walking away from the car park towards the big screen.

One made a full admission and will be dealt with by restorative justice.
No further action will be taken against the second man.
