Shot fired in St Ann’s: 26-year-old charged

Nottingham Post - - CITY’S WEEKEND OF VIOLENCE -

A MAN has been charged over a shoot­ing in St Ann’s.

Qua­mai Nu­gent, of War­ton Av­enue, Not­ting­ham, is charged with pos­sess­ing a firearm with in­tent to cause fear.

The 26-year-old was due be­fore city mag­is­trates to­day. A 25-year old man was also ar­rested but re­leased on bail pend­ing fur­ther In­quiries.

Po­lice were called at 8pm on Fri­day after a dis­tur­bance in The Wells Road.

It was re­ported that a firearm had been dis­charged and a po­lice search of the area was launched. No in­juries were re­ported.

An­gela Nu­gent, 55, of Mans­field Road, said: “My sis­ter lives on this road and I used to. I re­mem­ber when Danielle Bec­can was shot and killed years ago, my son Car­los held her in his arms when she was com­ing back from the Goose Fair years ago.

“It started to get bet­ter in the city but now there seems to be much more hap­pen­ing. It’s re­ally ter­ri­fy­ing. It’s com­ing back quite a bit.”

Ah­met Ci­nar, 28, owner of the Pre­miere shop in The Wells Road, said: “I’ve heard there was armed po­lice from cus­tomers, and I saw a he­li­copter my­self.

“I moved from Tot­ten­ham in Lon­don five years ago and bought this shop. It’s not as bad as there, where there’s a he­li­copter ev­ery other night, but St Ann’s isn’t a great area; it doesn’t feel very safe around here.”

A po­lice spokesman said: “Gun crime is not wel­come in Not­ting­hamshire and we con­tinue to do ev­ery­thing we can to pre­vent, dis­rupt and ar­rest those re­spon­si­ble for com­mit­ting of­fences of this na­ture here.”
