Ilford double shooting leaves teenager, 19, in hospital as witnesses say he went ‘knocking on doors for help’ after another night of Lawless London bloodshed


A DOUBLE shooting has left a teenager in hospital as witnesses say he went “knocking on doors for help” after another night of Lawless London bloodshed.

Cops found the 19-year-old suffering a gunshot wound after they were called to Ilford, East London, at around 11.40pm last night.

Shortly afterwards police were called to reports of another shooting just a mile away, and found firearms had been used. The two incidents are being treated as linked.

The teen’s condition is still not known, but police have confirmed his life is not in danger.


Shocking photos from the scene show a wall and car smeared with blood in Hornbeam Close, a road where the injured man reportedly sought help.

Items of clothing, including a bag, a torn T-shirt and a single sandal, litter the cordoned off stretch.

An untouched chocolate milkshake and glass, along with a pile of towels and a First Aid bag, were also perched on the wall immediately outside a row of homes.
