DETECTIVES investigating a shooting and a stabbing at a house in Oxford Street have arrested three men on suspicion of attempted murder.

The men, aged 30, 27 and 20, are all from Rugby.

Emergency services were called just before 9pm last Thursday (March 17) to a report that a 17-year-old male had been injured with a firearm.

While they were at the scene, another man at the property, aged 18, was found with a knife wound.




Both victims have now been released from hospital.

The house has been closed by police after Leamington Magistrates’ Court issued a Closure Order, barring anyone from entering for three months.
