Police are appealing for CCTV or dashcam footage of a silver Land Rover as part of their investigation into shots being fired in Deepdale.


Two shots, believed to be from a shotgun, were fired in Elcho Street on Sunday 30 August.

After the incident, four men wearing balaclavas were seen making off in the vehicle in the direction of Garstang Road.

The Land Rover was recovered on Tuesday 1 September in the Fishergate area.

Prior to this, police believe it may have been driven in the Blackpool Road area, possibly towards Ingol, Tanterton and Ashton. It is also possible the vehicle used several sets of registration plates during this time.

Detectives are now asking for help piecing together where the vehicle was between 30 August and 1 September.

DC Ged Haselden of Preston CID said: “We are asking anybody who has CCTV or dashcam systems to check back and see if they have any footage of this silver Land Rover in the time between the incident taking place and the time the vehicle was recovered by officers in Preston.

“We are also continuing to appeal for information about this incident, or those involved. If you know anything, please get in touch as soon as possible.”

On Friday 11 September, a 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent. He has since been released on bail, pending further enquiries.
