“Our officers arrived on the scene really quickly, and immediately began to work with paramedic colleagues to provide emergency treatment. Others worked to coordinate the quick arrest of the four suspects.
“We are in the early stages of our investigations, and throughout the day we will be investing a large number of officers into this incident. This will be a combination of detectives and uniformed officers, who you can expect to see many of within the area.
“Cordons will remain in place within the area, which I understand can cause some disruption but are necessary at this time to ensure a thorough investigation can take place.
“Incidents of this type do remain rare, and through extensive work we have done in the city with partners we continue to drive down knife-crime. Of course, whenever an incident like this happens I understand the concern they can cause within our communities.
“That’s why today and through this week residents can expect to see a large number of officers to provide reassurance.
“Knife-crime remains one of our top priorities across Nottinghamshire, and our dedicated knife-crime team will also be in the area and will continue to work hard every day to target people who carry weapons on our streets and work proactively with groups to prevent offences from happening.”
