High police presence to remain in Droitwich as the gun teen has still not been found

Droitwich Editorial 13th Jul, 2015 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

POLICE in Droitwich are still trying to track down a teenager who was walking around with a firearm. The Standard reported yesterday (Sunday) how officers were called out to the incident after claims the woman was in the town centre.

She was reportedly aged between her mid to late teens, had short light brown hair and was wearing  a pink t-shirt. A part of the High Street was closed after about 6.20pm, but later reopened. However, a high police presence remained  in the area while the search continues.

Today, Ch Insp Jerry Reakes-Williams told The Standard the incident was still being investigated, the woman had not yet been identified ill investigating the incident. “There is no evidence to suggest that any threats have been made or that the firearm was discharged. “We are also trying to establish whether this was a genuine firearm or a fake. “Our utmost priority is the safety of the public and this led to a high-profile policing response yesterday evening.” He added a high police presence would be maintained whilst investigations were ongoing and he urged anyone who saw the woman fitting the description to not approach her and to call 999 immediately.

Anyone with any information on the woman or on her location should call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
