London: Man arrested after four injured & child in serious condition following shooting attack

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police investigating a shooting in Brent in which a child was seriously injured have confirmed an arrest has been made.

At around 05:00hrs on Friday, 5 June, officers executed warrants at two addresses in North London.

One man, aged 19 was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and taken into custody where he remains.

The Met confirmed the arrest was made in connection with a shooting in Energen Close, Harlesden at around 21:45hrs on Wednesday, 3 June.

Officers attended, along with London Ambulance Service, and found four people suffering gunshot injuries.

One of the injured was a two-year-old child, he has been taken to a central London hospital where his condition is serious but stable.

Two men, aged in their late teens, and the mother of the child, a woman in her late 20s, were also taken to hospital. The condition of the three adults is not life-threatening or changing.

All the injured are believed to be known to each other and it appears they were in the street when they were approached by a lone man, the man was carrying a hang gun and fired multiple shots at the two teenage men, he also fired into a car they were near.

As a result of the indiscriminate shooting the mother was hit, as was the child who was in the car.

The gunman is then believed to have left the scene on a motorbike.

Detective Chief Inspector Rick Sewart of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command (Trident), said: “As result of this terrible crime an innocent two-year-old-boy is now seriously ill in hospital.

“This child was shot in a wanton act of indiscriminate violence.

“I know that people will be shocked and horrified that a little boy should be the victim of a gunman and I need the community to show their support for him, and his family, by telling police what they know.

“Anyone giving information will be fully supported and if you don’t want to give your name you can call Crimestoppers, which is totally anonymous.

“But however you want to do it, make that call, and anyone who is doubtful should think of that little boy and his family’s anguish.”

North West Borough Commander Roy Smith, said: “This violent incident in itself is shocking but even more abhorrent is the fact that one of the victims is a young child.

“We are doing all that we can to bring these criminals to justice and I am working closely with the senior investigating officer from the Met’s Trident Command who is leading the investigation. The Trident team are being supported by specialist detectives from across the Met along with officers from the North West Command Unit.

“We want to hear from anyone who might have any information which could help the investigation no matter how insignificant they feel it is. As a child is battling for their life I urge everyone in the local community to support us by coming forward with any information that will help us make arrests.

“I am making sure that we have extra officers on the borough, right now and in the coming weeks. This includes offices from the Violent Crime Task Force and the Met’s Specialist Firearm Command.

“I know that residents will be worried about their safety and the safety of their families. This is my primary concern and local officers will be conducting additional patrols to provide support and a visible reassurance.

“I also know that to tackle violence we need to work together – I have been in touch with community leaders today and we will continue to listen and respond to concerns raised by local residents.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 or contact via Twitter @MetCC. Please quote CAD 8326/03JUN.
