Chief Inspector Phil Lamb said: “Violence of any kind is not tolerated in Southampton.
“Gun-related crime is low but we understand any incident which involves a firearm is concerning to residents and visitors alike. We want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to reduce violence in the city and those found to be responsible will be dealt with robustly.
“Public safety is our priority and I would like to thank the members of the public who called 999 to inform us of this incident, the policing teams who responded, and those who managed the ongoing risk and led the investigation getting this result at court.”
