A murder investigation has been launched after a man was shot dead in Haringey and two others suffered gunshot wounds.

Officers were called to Green Lanes near the junction with West Green Road at 10.31pm yesterday (Tuesday) where they found a 22-year-old from Newham with gunshot injuries.

Despite efforts of paramedics he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police were later called to a home in Edmonton where a man in his late 30s reported he had been shot in Green Lanes.

He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A third victim, 24, self-presented at hospital with gun shot injuries which were also not life threatening.

Four men, all aged in their early 20s, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and are currently in police custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley said: “We are investigating the brutal murder of a young man.

“This wanton act has left a family traumatised and mourning the loss of a loved one, while two more people have needed urgent hospital treatment.

“If you witnessed the shooting, have any information or were driving in the area and have dashcam footage, please call police.”

He added information will be treated in confidence and said people can contact Crimestoppers anonymously if they prefer.

DCI Jolley continued: “Although four people have been arrested on suspicion of murder, I want the public to understand this is still very early in the investigation and I am sure further arrests will need to made.

“We need to take the gun and the gunman off the streets and I need the public’s help to do that.”

Chief Superintendent Simon Crick, in charge of the North Area Command Unit, added: “This is a dreadfully sad loss of life and I understand how shocked the community will be. 

“My thoughts are with the family of this young man. I want the community to know that they can expect to see more officers in the area and to approach them if they want to discuss any concerns or share any information.”
