Everyone is believed to have died from gunshot wounds. Another woman was treated at the scene for injuries. “He died shortly afterwards in hospital,” the police statement said.

    Police are urging members of the public on mobile phones to post nothing on social media platforms immediately after the incident, respecting the deceased.
    “My thoughts are with the friends and family of those who lost their lives and with all those affected by the tragic incident in Plymouth last night. I thank the emergency services for their response,” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told Twitter.
    “The Plymouth incident is shocking and my thoughts are with the victims. I spoke to the warden and offered my full support. I urge everyone to remain calm, follow the advice of the police and allow our emergency services to continue their job. “wrote on Twitter the Minister of the Interior of the United Kingdom, Priti Patel.

    The Southwest Ambulance Service said emergency response teams, several ambulances, air ambulances, several doctors and senior medical personnel were also sent to the scene.
    A witness, who lives near the scene and gave her name as Sharron, told the BBC: “First, voices were heard, followed by gunshots – three, possibly four for a start. That was when the perpetrator kicked out the door of a house and accidentally started to shoot … he ran from the house shooting as he ran and proceeded to shoot some people in Linear Park from the traffic “.
