A man who was shot still faces a “long road to recovery” as police continue to investigate.

Metropolitan Police have released a new appeal calling for witnesses after reports of gunshots in the warehouse district on Blackhorse Lane, Walthamstow, last Saturday (June 17).

A man, 22, was found with a gunshot wound and was rushed to hospital in critical condition.

However later on his condition was found to be not life-threatening.

One week later, police say they have carried out a number of enquiries but still believe there were several witnesses who have not come forward to the force.

Detective Inspector Mat Freeman, the officer leading the investigation, said: "This incident left a man seriously injured, and whilst his condition has improved, he still faces a long road to recovery.

"We are determined to find those responsible and have already carried out extensive enquiries, however we still need any witnesses to come forward and tell us what they saw."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC giving the reference CAD 8299/17JUN23.
