Main article content
Police are in attendance in Islington today (Thursday 19 August).
At around 9.30am this morning we received a report that, at around 11.30pm last night (Wednesday 18 August) shots were fired on William Henry Street.
Patrols attended and found evidence consistent with a gun being fired.
No injuries have been reported.
Detectives are currently in the area to carry out extensive forensic, CCTV and witness enquiries and to speak to the local community.
Chief Inspector Steve Hardy said: “We’re in the very early stages of an investigation into a gun being fired on William Henry Street and we would appeal for anyone with any information to come forward.
“Firing a weapon is extremely reckless and while, thankfully, nobody was injured, this would have been shocking for the local community.
“We're keen to hear from anyone in the area who saw or heard anything yesterday evening, or captured anyone in the area on CCTV, dashcam or doorbell devices.
“We will act on all information provided on gun crime to remove weapons and those who use them from the community. Please come forward with what you know, directly or anonymously, and we will do the rest.”
