DETECTIVES investigating a shooting on a Southampton street have today arrested a man.

A 61-year-old man from Southampton has been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and concerned in the supply of class B drugs in connection with the investigation.

He remains in police custody at this time.

The arrest comes after it was reported that a 17-year-old boy had been shot outside a home on Bluebell Road.

Emergency services were called to the Swaythling street at 10.15pm on Monday night following the incident.

Police say the 17-year-old boy was shot in the legs and ankles and it is believed the weapon used was a shotgun.

Officers later cordoned off a section of the street while they carried out forensic enquiries.

The victim is currently in hospital receiving treatment for non-life threatening gun shot wounds.

Police carried out door-to-door enquiries yesterday appealing for information and remain at the scene today.

Anyone with any information in relation to this incident is asked to call 101 and quote 44190059982.
