At around 9.35pm a white taxi parked up on Margate Drive, Grimesthorpe, before a blue Audi pulled alongside the vehicle and fired at the taxi.
The Audi then left the scene and the three taxi passengers, believed to be three men in their 20’s, also left the scene.
The driver of the taxi was uninjured, but damage was caused to the vehicle.
A short time later, officers detained and arrested a 23-year-old man on suspicion of firearms offences. He remains in custody at this time.
Here are the dramatic pictures from the aftermath of the shooting. Pictures from Chris Etchells and Dan Hayes.
