London has seen five men shot in the space of seven hours. While most seemed to be unconnected – it’s a shock for the city. Gun attacks took place in Hackney in the east of the city and Brixton and Croydon in the south.
It marked the end of the British capital’s deadliest month so far which saw 15 murders recorded in the city.
There have been ten fatal in shootings in London so far this year, with eight taking place since June.
