A man of Nigerian descent has been arrested in the United Kingdom after he was seen firing repeated gunshots from a balcony.
According to reports in the UK media, the incident occurred at a dockside flat in Chatham in the Kent region of England on Wednesday.
The suspect, identified only as Flexing Mike, had live-streamed himself on Instagram firing nine shots being fired from a top-floor balcony.
The accent of the suspect clearly resembled that of a Nigerian as he uttered some swear words in clear pidgin English.
The police were said to have been called to the scene of the incident by distraught residents.
Four armed police officers were seen entering the building and asking men in the block whether the suspect had live rounds.
According to Kent Police, four imitation guns were recovered from the suspect, said to be in his 30s.
See below the video of the suspect shooting his balcony as shared on social media:
