GUN DRAMA Chatham: Armed cops scrambled as ‘weapon-wielding’ man ‘fires shots from balcony’ (pic/video)



ARMED cops have raced to reports of a man firing shots from a flat in Chatham, Kent, UK this morning April 22nd.

According to Sun UK, Police urged people in the Dockside area to stay away as they deal with frantic residents’ claims a man is wielding weapons on a balcony.

Video footage shared on social media and later deleted shows a man stood on the balcony of the property.

He repeatedly moves back and forward towards the edge of the balcony, firing off several shots each time.

Gasps can be heard from below, with one person filming saying: “Oh my God, he’s shooting”.


It is not clear from the footage what the gunman is shooting at.

A spokesman said: “Kent Police was called at 8.35am on Wednesday, April 22, to a disturbance at a flat on Dock Head Road, Chatham.

“Members of the public reported seeing a man on a balcony with weapons and patrols, including armed officers, are at the scene making enquiries.”

Kent Police tweeted: “We are currently assisting @KPTacOps with an incident at #Dockside in #Chatham.

“Numerous roads closures in place and therefore we kindly ask you to stay away from the area. Thank you for understanding in this matter.”

Cops have surrounded the Dockside Outlet Shopping Centre, near to the flat where the man was spotted.

A police helicopter is said to be hovering over the area.

A neighbour who lives close to the mall told Kent Online: “There was a lot of banging just over an hour ago, I just assumed it was construction workers.

“There was armed police outside The Range who waved everyone back, they moved towards the noise.

“Staff at The Range have been trying to catch everyone and get them into the shop.

“Someone across the way shouted about someone having a gun. There’s a police helicopter flying above.”
