Detectives are re-appealing for witnesses a week on from a shooting in Brixton.

Last Friday (March, 5) at 9.44pm police were called to Blacktree Mews, SW9 off Brixton Station Road,  and found a seventeen-year-old man with a gunshot injury. The London Ambulance Service  rushed him to hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition.

Detectives believe that the shooting took place nearby at the junction of St James Crescent and Fyfield Road, at a 9.36pm and are eager to speak to potential witnesses.

Detective Constable Fraser Lockey, who is investigating the shooting, said: “We are particularly interested in speaking to the occupants of a black hatchback style car that was on St James’ Crescent at the time, as it is believed they may have witnessed the incident.

“We would also like to speak to a person who crossed St James’ Crescent and walked down Western Road near to the time of the incident. They were wearing a light coloured coat and we believe they might also hold valuable information.”

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information that could help officers should call 101, using the reference CAD 7558/05MAR21.
