A Keyham resident who lives near the scene of the shooting said on Saturday she at first thought the gunshots were fireworks.
Melanie Fletcher, 52, who works in a regional supermarket, told the PA news agency: “My back garden backs onto the field, so I saw the four helicopters land, and then a fifth one hovering.
” We heard the shots but me and my spouse are from London and its so quiet here that firstly we believed it was a car backfiring. After the 3rd, 4th shot, my partner believed possibly it was fireworks, you understand. As we were cleaning our car, armed authorities came by and stated go in and shut your door.
” Its extremely peaceful around here– weve only been here 18 months and from what I can gather, its an extremely close community, and everybody understands everybody. It was quite shocking.”.
On people laying flowers in the local park, she added: “It simply touches your heart, you know, sort of faith in humanity. Its still stunning.”.
