    Devon and Cornwall Police were called to Biddick Drive in the Keyham area at about 18:10 BST on Thursday.

    The force said: "There have been a number of fatalities at the scene and several other casualties are receiving treatment."

    Plymouth Moor View MP Johnny Mercer tweeted it was "not terror related" and the suspect was not on the run.

    Police declared a critical incident but said they believed it had now been contained.

    Officers appealed to the public not to speculate or share pictures of the scene on social media or anywhere else.

    Home secretary Priti Patel tweeted: "The incident in Plymouth is shocking and my thoughts are with those affected.

    "I have spoken to the Chief Constable and offered my full support.

    "I urge everyone to remain calm, follow police advice and allow our emergency services to get on with their jobs."

    'Randomly started shooting'

    Eyewitness Sharron, who lives near Biddick Drive and did not want to give her full name, said what happened was "horrendous and so sad".

    "Firstly, there was shouting, followed by gunshots - three possibly four to begin with," she said.

    "This was when the shooter kicked in the door of a house and randomly started shooting ... He ran from the house shooting as he ran and proceeded to shoot at a few people in the linear park up from the drive."

    She said the "shooter proceeded along Royal Navy Avenue still shooting".

    Another witness, Robert Pinkerton, said he "walked around the corner" and "bumped into a bloke with a shotgun". He said the man was dressed all in black.

    At the scene

    There is still a police presence and the area is cordoned off at Biddick Drive.

    Earlier there was a huge number of emergency service vehicles and I lost count of the number of police cars.

    We saw at least four air ambulances - one we believe was called in from as far away as Southampton - and also multiple land ambulances.

    There has been a huge amount going on.

    People are being asked to stay inside and follow police advice as the emergency services respond.

    Local MP Luke Pollard said the situation "looks very serious indeed".

    He later tweeted: "Update: awaiting confirmation of number of victims but this looks like a very grim day for our city and our community.

    "Please can I ask that you think of the families and our community and not share any images or videos of any of the victims. #keyham."

    Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer tweeted: "There's much we don't know about the shocking events in Plymouth. However it's clear tragedy has hit Keyham.

    "My thoughts are with the families and neighbours of those caught up in this nightmare. I pay tribute to our emergency services who ran towards events we'd all run from."

    Mr Pollard added Ford Primary School and St Mark's Church on Cambridge Road would be open from 09:00 on Friday as a "safe place for our community to come together".

    And I thought the United States was bad. At least I haven't heard of the wave of gun violence in the U.K. as I do here in the U.S. Regardless, my heart goes out to the families of these victims and I pray that the perpetrator will be brought to justice.

    Just Saying.

    Absolutely horrible stuff :'( . My condolences to the friends and families of all the victims.

    Now, we know the name of the shooter. It was 22-year-old Jake Davison, who killed his own mother - then a father and a daughter:

    Absolutely despicable. I really hope he gets life behind bars (which, since we don't do capital punishment, is the most he can get).
