Police cordons have been elevated in Biddick Drive and Henderson Place in Keyham, where Jake Davison killed the victims on Thursday.

People have left flowers and letters in the area over the weekend in tribute to those who died.

Plymouth City Council expressed that the silence at 11:00 BST was one of the tributes being made.

Maxine Davison, 51, Stephen Washington, 59, and Kate Shepherd, 66, were killed in the attack, along with their father and daughter Lee Martyn, 43, and Sophie Martyn, three.

The Lord Mayor of Plymouth is welcoming everyone across the UK to mark the silence. In Plymouth, the city council mentioned people could observe the silence with civic leaders and council staff outside The Guildhall on Armada Way from 10.30.

Police stated forensic examinations would persist at 17 Biddick Drive, where Davison lived, over the coming days.

In Thursday evening’s attack, 22-year-old Davison fired Maxine’s mother before killing Sophie and her father. He then shot Mr Washington in a nearby park before shooting Ms Shepherd, taken her to Derriford Hospital, where she passed away.

He also shot and wounded a 33-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman, fetched to hospital, before turning the gun on himself.

Devon and Cornwall Police mentioned that a noticeable police presence would be present in the broader area until Monday evening.

The force stated community drop-in centres remained open for Keyham residents at St Mark’s Church and Ford Primary School.
