A 16-year-old boy who was shot in the back in Luton is the ninth victim of guncrime in the area this year.
The teenager remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.
Armed police officers patrol the area of the shooting, as fears grow that there could be more trouble between rival gangs.
A £1,000 reward has been offered for information that will help with the arrest of the gunman.
Police are looking for a man who was seen in the area at the time of the shooting in the early hours of Saturday morning.
He is described as being in his mid-teens, white, wearing a blue top and jeans.
