Clapham shooting: Police release video of man being shot on 4 June - appeal for information

Postby Community Editor » Wed Aug 21, 2019 8:00 am

Police have released shocking footage of the moment a man was shot in the leg in Clapham.

A video of the attack shows a man standing on a footpath before another man jumps out of a car, holding what the Met said is a pump action shotgun. 

He then runs towards the person on the footpath, fires two shots, and turns around to run back to his car, nearly tripping over in the process.

The Met, issuing an appeal for information on Tuesday, said it was called to Bedford Road at the junction with Fenwick Place at 9.30pm on June 4.

His injuries were declared non-life threatening.

When officers arrived, there was no trace of the victim or suspects. They only found a shell casing. 

About 15 minutes later, a 24-year-old man went to a hospital in south London suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.

His injuries were declared non-life threatening.

The car was a "light-coloured" Lexus RX 300 with false plates. It pulled up outside the Falcon pub.

The car has not been recovered and there have been no arrests. DC Melanie Burridge said: “This appears to be a deliberate attempt on a man’s life with a deadly weapon. It was committed on a busy street and placed the public in immediate danger.

"I am asking anyone with information to contact us immediately. We cannot allow such deadly crimes on our streets and our communities need to work with us to stop them."

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101. Quote CAD 7863 of June 4
