Police appeal for witnesses after man shot ‘a number of times’ in Harrow

Met Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was injured in a shooting outside a tube station in Harrow last night (18 November). 

A statement on the Met Police website said: “Police were called at 18:40hrs on Wednesday, 18 November after reports a man had been shot near Sudbury Hill Underground Station on Greenford Lane.

“Officers attended along with the London Ambulance Service. A 19-year-old man was found with gunshot wounds.

“He was taken to hospital where his injuries are being assessed, but are not thought to be life-threatening.

“It’s believed the victim was chased along the street before being shot a number of times.

“At this early stage of the investigation, there have been no arrests.

“Anyone with information is asked to call 101, or tweet @MetCC, quoting reference Cad 5795/18Nov.

“Alternatively, contact the independently charity Crimestoppersanonymously on 0800 555 111.”

The shooting comes just days after a teenager was murdered in Harrow near Northwick Park station. A 16-year-old boy has been charged with murder.

Members of Harrow Online Group have been commenting on the violent crimes. One member said: “I’m really sad that this is happening, seems to be more and more recently. I hope that things improve soon as it’s really scary”.

Another person said: “The sooner the Police acknowledge we are in the midst of a major crime wave the better.”
