16 Year Old Shot In Back

A 16 year old boy's been shot in the back just a few streets away from London's famous Portobello Road.

Police said they were called at 12.35am on Sunday 22 January 2012 to an incident near Westbourne Park tube.

They found a 16-year-old boy at the junction of St Luke's Road and Tavistock Crescent, suffering from a gunshot wound.

Scotland Yard said officers from the Trident shootings team, which investigates gun crime in the black community, were appealing for help from anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious or anyone who may have information concerning what happened.

This was the second shooting of the weekend, after a 20 year old man was shot in the leg in a Tottenham nightclub at around 3.45am on Saturday 21 January.

It happened at Rudolph's on the Tottenham High Road.  The man was taken to an east London hospital for treatment for what police called a 'non-life threatening injury'.
