20 Year Old Youth Killed In London’s Second Fatal Shooting This Week

A young man was shot dead in north-east London in the second fatal gun attack in the capital in a week.

A murder investigation was launched after the 20-year-old was killed in Forest Road in Walthamstow on Wednesday night.

Police were called to reports of shots fired in Forest Road at 9.30pm.

Officers and medics found him suffering from a gunshot injury. He was treated at the scene but pronounced dead at 10.45pm.

There have been no arrests.

The fatal shooting happened within an hour of an 18-year-old being stabbed to death in Chadwell Heath, east London.

It also came a week after 19-year-old Kelvin Odunuyi was shot dead outside a Vue cinema in Wood Green.

Eight teenagers have been killed in London already this year.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
