The shooting in Fountains Road on Sunday 5 May 2013 is one of ten shootings there have been in Luton in 2013 so far.

The motorbiker made off towards Culverhouse Road where the bike crashed into a taxi. The rider then escaped on foot.

Bedfordshire Police have now scaled back armed police patrols they put on to tackle the escalation in gun crime. They have told Heart they have done this because the threat level has now reduced.
