Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was shot in his leg in Lower Clapton in broad daylight yesterday afternoon.
According to Scotland Yard the victim had been talking with a friend in Downs Park Road when a car - believed to be a black Jaguar - drove slowly by.
Two men got out and began to argue with the victim. They got back in the car, but then the driver allegedly got back out, walked up to the victim and “became aggressive towards him”, before shooting him in his leg.
The victim went to hospital, where his injuries were not deemed to be life-threatening, and the police were called just before 4pm.
Detectives from the Met’s Trident unit are now appealing for information or footage to help the investigation, and a crime scene is currently in place.
