Gang police have reissued an appeal for a man they want to speak to after a woman was shot in a Kingsland Road nightclub on New Year’s Day.
Visions was stripped of its licence and closed down by Hackney Council in January over the incident, but the attacker is still at large.
He pulled out a gun and approached another man in the club just after 4.50am. A struggle ensued and the gun was fired, striking a 28-year-old woman in the leg.
She is still receiving medical treatment for her injuries more than seven months on.
Detectives from the Met's Trident squad first issued an appeal in February showing a man they want to question. He is about 30 and has a tattoo on the right side of his neck with the word "God", followed by a longer word that begins with "bless".
