One man in his 20s and another in his 30s, were treated at hospital for serious injuries, although these are not believed to be life-threatening.

Has anyone been arrested?

The Comet is working to establish if anyone has been arrested, after efforts were made to apprehend a suspect on Thursday (April 11).

At around 8.45pm, a police helicopter was seen and heard flying above the town centre, with Bedfordshire Police later confirming it was part of a search operation to locate and arrest a suspect involved in the shooting.

"The aircraft was working with Bedfordshire officers executing a warrant to arrest a suspect involved with a firearms incident on Tuesday," said a Beds police spokesperson.
