Witnesses have claimed that a speeding car drove past and opened fire from an automatic weapon fiving five shots.  One of these hit the girl who is understood to be in her teens,  A bystander who went to the aid of the young woman said there were around 5 loud bangs then a car whizzed around the corner. I watch the girl fall and cry out in pain and then ran over to help her. I just keep telling her that she was going o be alright I waited with her until the police turned up.
