Two brothers aged 24 and 20 alleged that a 55-year-old man shot in their direction and that his son, 26, was also involved in the argument.

During the raid, the police found a hunting rifle at the 55-year-old man’s house which was probably used during the argument. Ammunition was also found in the street after a shot was fired.

No one was injured.

The police also seized cannabis from the brothers’ residence.

At this stage, the police are investigating the cause of the argument.

The two brothers and the 55-year-old man remain arrested.
