    Local university student Ben Suleyman, 18, said he heard the loud ‘bang’, but did not think anything of it until he saw helicopters hovering overhead. 

    ‘I was out in the garden with the dog, I’m literally just one street over, and I heard this big bang, just one,’ Mr Suleyman said.

    ‘I didn’t know it was a gunshot so I think much of it, but then once I heard the police and the helicopter I jumped in my car and drove around to see what was going on.

    ‘I met the older man once, he was a pleasant guy. He’d just bought his daughter a car.’

    Longtime local resident Louis Bugeja, 63, heard the disturbance on the street and came outside to see what was going on.

    ‘The first thing we heard from police was that there had been a domestic dispuite, and they believed a stabbing, but then we heard it was a gunshot,’ Mr Bugeja said.

    ‘I saw the guys being loaded in the back of the ambulance, the younger guy was holding his neck.’ 

    Mr Bugeja said there had been several incidents on the street in recent years, but not in the house related to Thursday’s shooting.
