Footage appears to show gunman being held on the ground outside college in England

Footage circulating on social media appears to show a man being held on the ground at a college in the south of England.

Students and staff at a college in West Sussex were evacuated following reports of gunshot fire yesterday.

An 18-year-old man was detained following the incident at Crawley College and a firearm and a knife were seized.

Two college staff members sustained minor injuries, which police stressed were not gunshot wounds.

A video shared on Snapchat appears to show someone being held on the ground by several others outside the college, while the person holding the camera says “my man had a knife and a gun”.
