Met Police anti-gang detectives have released CCTV showing a gunman jumping off the back of a moped and opening fire on three men in a suspected gangland shooting in Brixton, south London. The incredible footage shows three men walking along Tulse Hill when a moped slows down alongside the group. The pillion passenger suddenly leaps off the bike before chasing the trio and opening fire on them.
A 20-year-old man suffered a single gunshot wound to the upper right thigh but nobody else was injured in the shooting, which happened shortly before 7pm on 7 February. The suspect then got back onto the moped and the two suspects rode off towards Norwood. The victim was taken by the London Ambulance Service to a south London hospital for treatment and was released the following day.
The rider of the moped is described as wearing a light coloured helmet. The suspect who fired the shots is described as wearing a black, full face helmet with white flashings and dark trousers with white stripes on the leg.
Detectives are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information about the shooting, who has not come forward, to contact them by calling 020 8247 4863 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
