"The police said it was unlikely to be gunfire at the time, but there were clear bullet holes in the windows when I went past this morning.”

“The windows to the left and right of the door had small round holes in, with the glass around the holes stressed about six inches - so it could only be a bullet in my mind.

“There's scaffolding up today, so I'm not sure if they've actually caused structural damage. It was very intense.”
