According to a police statement, the accused lives with his father, and had rented a room to a woman and her son.

Sources claim the 23-year-old son of the tenant and the detainee’s father were ‘threatened with a knife on repeated occasions’ so that they gave him money to fund his ‘drug problem’.

Officers recovered a firearm during a search of the property, believed to belong to the accused.
