Upon arrival, police officers found a 42-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman sustaining gunshot wounds.

They were treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to a hospital in stable conditions.

A crime scene has been established, with an investigation also underway into all circumstances of the incident.
