Hackney Downs Shooting

Hackney Downs Park: In an east London shooting, a woman has died and a man and adolescent boy have been injured. The 42-year-old woman passed away at the site, and the 16-year-old kid and man were sent to the hospital. Tuesday at around 18:30 GMT, there was gunfire on Vine Road, which is located in a tiny housing complex in Lower Clapton, Hackney.

Mayor of Hackney Caroline Woodley and cabinet member for community safety Susan Fajana-Thomas said in a statement: “We are deeply shocked and saddened to learn that a woman has died after a fatal shooting which left two others injured in Vine Close, Hackney Downs last night.

A murder investigation has been opened by the Metropolitan Police. There have been no takedowns.

The force said that investigations are underway to determine the motivation. Police described the act as “shocking” and said they would be staying at the scene for the next few days. They also asked for witnesses.

“I do not underestimate the impact this incident will have on people in Hackney and I understand the community will want answers about what has happened this evening. We will share further information as our investigation progresses,”. “Gun crime has no place on the streets of London and we will do all we can to bring whoever is responsible for this despicable crime to justice.” Det Supt Vicky Tunstall said.

The female victim’s next of kin was being notified by officers, according to the Met. The boy’s and man’s conditions are being evaluated.

A massive police cordon is in place at the location, and a white tent has been set up beside one of the main doors.

A automobile near the close’s entrance has been the subject of forensic teams’ attention for some time.

We are sending our sympathies and best wishes to the families, friends, and neighbors of all those impacted.
