Investigations are ongoing.

Inspector Marcus Oldroyd, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We will always respond immediately to incidents of this nature to keep people safe. Violence of any kind is unacceptable—especially when it weapons involved.

“I would like to reassure residents that this was an isolated incident involving people known to each other and there was no wider threat to the local community.”
