Dozens of police officers raced to a firearms incident on Tuesday night and sealed off a street close to the ring road.
Residents said the trouble began around 9.30pm and police were quickly on the scene at the Park Road/Ostler Avenue area in Springwood .
But given the lateness of the hour many residents were unaware of what was happening.
A party of Huddersfield University students who didn't want to be identified said: "We had no idea until the Examiner told us what was going on."
