In response to the incident, officers have detained 11 men, all of whom remain in police custody under suspicion of attempted murder.

Enhanced stop-and-search powers have been implemented in parts of Bristol. These powers came into effect at 7 pm on Sunday and will initially last for 24 hours. Superintendent Lisa Simpson granted the authority under Sections 60 and 60AA of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act.

“These powers will allow uniformed officers to stop and search any person or vehicle within a specified area for weapons to prevent serious violence,” said Superintendent Simpson. “We do not underestimate the concerns of the local community following this recent incident of knife crime and serious violence in Bristol. It is because of this that we have made the decision to bring in the Section 60 powers for our officers.”

Under Section 60, officers can stop and search individuals suspected of carrying knives or other weapons. Section 60AA grants them the authority to ask people to remove face coverings if believed to be worn to conceal their identity.

The authorisation for these powers can last up to 24 hours, after which it may be extended by a superintendent for an additional 24 hours.

Despite the enhanced powers, officers will follow standard stop-and-search procedures, including explaining the reason for the stop, recording the interaction on body-worn video, and offering a receipt to the individual.

Avon and Somerset Police urge anyone who was in the Stapleton Road/Rawnsley Park area between 4:15 am and 5 am on Sunday, and witnessed anything suspicious or has video footage, to call 101 and reference the number 5224148270.
