Police are appealing for witnesses and information after Saturday night’s double shooting in Peckham.
As the News reported yesterday, officers and armed police were called to Wodehouse Avenue, SE5, at 7.56pm on Saturday, June 2 to reports of a shooting.
Two men were found suffering from gun shot wounds, including a 22-year-old widely reported to have been shot directly in the face. He received treatment and his condition is now said to be ‘non-life threatening’.
The other victim, a 25-year-old man, was not seriously injured.
A London Met spokesperson said: “At this early stage it is believed that the victims were sitting inside a vehicle at Wodehouse Avenue when they were attacked with shots being fired through the windows of the vehicle.”
A trident investigation is on-going but as yet there have been no arrests.
DS Tom Walter from the trident and area crime command said: “We are appealing in particular for anyone who has dashcam footage who was in Southampton Way, Commercial Way or Wodehouse Avenue to contact us as a matter of urgency. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence.”
Anyone who has information or witnessed the incident should contact trident detectives by calling 101 and quoting reference number CAD7382/2JUN.
