Police investigating a shooting and stabbing were rounded on by a hostile crowd in Brixton last night.
Paramedics, London’s Air Ambulance and police had been called to Moorland Road at 9.37pm on Wednesday (June 2) after reports of a man seriously injured.
The victim, said to be in his mid-20s, sustained stab wounds and gunshot injuries. Although it is believed he will survive the attack, his injuries may be ‘life changing’.
A seventeen year-old boy was arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder and remains in custody.
In a statement issued today (Thursday June 3) the Met said while its officers were responding to the incident they were ‘approached by a large group of people and objects were thrown at them’.
No officers were seriously injured during the incident.
Police say a crime scene remains in place, along with a police presence in the area, to reassure residents.
