Two teenage girls remained in hospital and a third was discharged after all three were gunned down in the street.A case of ‘Shoot the women first’..?
Detectives hunting for a gunman were understood to be investigating if Thursday's attack was a botched drive-by hit. It was initially believed that only one shot was fired.Ah. They were just collateral damage, then…
An investigation is being led by Trident detectives, who deal with gang crime in the black community. No arrests have yet been made, police said.Politicians are, of course, pretty quick to court publicity. You might almost wonder if the gun was a starting pistol:
Karen Buck, MP for Westminster North, expressed her concern as she visited the troubled Mozart Estate where the attack took place.Oh, really? How, by shutting down social media, perchance?
The Labour politician, who has previously called for crackdowns on knife and gun crime, tweeted: "On Mozart Estate after reports of 3 girls being shot. Desperately worried about local gang and youth violence. We have to get a grip."
