A man in his 30s identified as Flexing Mike on Facebook, has been arrested after he opened fire with multiple guns from a balcony in Chatham, Kent.
Armed police descended onto Dockside shopping centre at about 8.35am after a man was seen brandishing the weapons from a nearby block of flats. Videos and witness accounts on social media show a man on a rooftop firing at random multiple times, with sparks coming out of the firearms.
One witness claimed the man had a machine gun, rifle and a pistol and appeared to be ‘shooting at the police’. Further footage appears to show the gunman livestreaming himself as he wanders around the apartment before opening fire. In one, he zooms in on his vast supply of weapons and bullets before stepping out onto the balcony shouting ‘call the police’.
