A manhunt is underway after three teenagers were shot in the early hours of this morning.
Two 15-year-olds were hurt, one of them with potentially life-changing injuries, and a 19-year-old is in a critical condition. They were shot at 12.42am today at Rochford Car Park in Haringey, north London.
The gunman is believed to have turned up in a car then shot the three victims before driving off and he is now being hunted by police.
The victims were taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for their injuries and their families have been informed.
Met Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone who may have dashcam footage from near the scene at the time of the shootings.
Detective Inspector Gemma Alger said: ‘Young men have been shot, one is critically injured and another has injuries that may mean his life has changed forever.
‘We want to stop these acts of violence and we can only do this by people telling us what they know.
‘I am extremely grateful to those who have already come forward, but I still need more help.
‘I want to hear from anyone who was in the area and may have seen a car driving around prior to the shooting, or saw it being driven erratically from the scene’.
Commander Paul Brogden said: ‘This was another appalling crime, where three young black males have become victims in our capital city, two of whom are actually children.
‘The Metropolitan Police will leave no stone unturned to bring to justice those responsible, but we need the help of Londoners to break this cycle of violence.
‘It is important that we all contribute, in many different ways, towards keeping our communities safe, please continue to do so wherever you are and whatever role you’re in.’
