Two people have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a shooting in the early hours of Monday (February 13).

A man in his 30s was shot in Waterlooville, Hampshire, at around 12.50am on Monday.

The victim was taken to Southampton General Hospital with a serious head injury.

Detectives then arrested a 37-year-old man and 38-year-old woman in Havant at around 2.25am.

Darren Rawlings, detective superintendent at Hampshire Constabulary, said: "It is likely local people will see a lot of officers and police activity in the area today as we both look to reassure the community and investigate the crime.

"We currently have two scenes; one where the arrests happened and one where the victim was shot."

He has appealed for witnesses to call 101, quoting Operation Endorse.
