POLICE cordoned off an area next to a stretch of shops in Warndon in a mysterious incident early this morning.

Officers arrived in Cranham Drive at about 6.30am and cordoned off the entrance to the flats above the shops in Cranham Parade.

Brenda Knight of T.J.’s Hair and Beauty Salon in Cranham Drive said there were lot of rumours but no one was certain what had happened.

“I just heard bits of whispers but I don’t really know much,” she said.

“I heard there might have been a shooting in one of the flats but we don’t know for sure.”
