The police received reports of gunshots at about 2:30 a.m. local time (1:30 GMT).

“The Caribbean Carnival had been taking place earlier that day but had finished several hours prior to this incident occurring, which is why there were still a lot of people in the area,” Detective Superintendent Debbie Dooley was quoted as saying.

The police will add extra patrols in the area.
