0 1

This is the terrifying moment a gunman leapt from a car and opened fire in a north London street leaving two innocent bystanders injured.


Shocking footage released by the Met shows two men pulling up in a car on the Peabody Estate, Islington, before one of them jumps out and fires a gun.

The CCTV footage appears to show a nearby bystander, a man in shorts, falling to the floor in terror as the gunman chased after another man, who was his intended target.

A female bystander was also injured in the melee.

Scotland Yard said a 34-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man were found with minor injuries after the gunman left the car and fired “several shots” at another man on Greenman Road.

Officers with firearms were called to Essex Road earlier this year, on September 20, at about 9.30pm, and found two members of the public injured.

Police said the target escaped unharmed but two bystanders were injured.

The CCTV footage showed the suspect run back to the car before the vehicle races off towards Popham Street.

No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting, police said.

Detective Constable Kerry Cooper, of the Trident and Area Crime Command, is leading the investigation. She said: “We need anyone who may have information about the gunman or driver of this vehicle to contact us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting CAD 8010/20 Sept, or tweet @MetCC.
