Three teenagers have been released under investigation after a 17-year-old was shot in Lower Clapton last month. 

Emergency services were called to Gilpin Road on the afternoon of March 7, following reports that a gun had been fired as a group of youths were fighting with knives.

Two boys on a motorbike were allegedly shot at in Gilpin Square by a "masked group" of four or five men. 

The group had fled by the time officers arrived alongside the London Ambulance Service (LAS).

About ten minutes later police were alerted to a 17-year-old boy with a gunshot wound in Belgrade Road.

He was taken to hospital where his injuries were assessed as non-life threatening.

Three males - two aged 18 and one aged 17 - were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder before being later released on bail.

They have since been released under investigation.
