Harrowing moment Kingsbury drive-by victims ran into shop to beg for help after triple shooting outside London Tube

A witness told the Sun Online the bloody pair stumbled into his Kingsbury store last night shouting "help, help, call an ambulance".

He added: "One was holding his leg. He’d been shot in his bottom I think.

“They ran behind my till and held the door closed.

“I called the ambulance and then police came in minutes.

“We have a massive problem with gangs around here. I’ve told the police, CID, but they don’t listen.

“Groups of young boys carrying knives, smoking drugs.

“But you can’t do anything because if you confront one, 100 will come back at you.

“I’ve been here for 23 years and this is some of the worst I’ve seen.”

Chilling footage obtained exclusively by The Sun Online captures the panic after a tube station drive-by shooting attack that left three people injured on Kingsbury Road in Brent, North West London.

Surrounded by stunned bystanders, the wailing victim can be heard screaming: "Get me an ambulance".

A mum of one, who lives close to the scene, said: “I heard five gun shots. It was really scary.

“I have a five year old son so I just told him to lay flat on the bed until it was all over.



“Then we heard all the sirens. There’s a lot of problems with gangs around here.

“They deal drugs and sometimes stash them with their knives in our block.”

Police are yet to make any arrests in relation to the shooting – which is not being treated as terror-related.

The terrified witness, who filmed from inside a pizza shop, described how chaos erupted after the suspected drive-by gangland hit just after 9.45pm last night.

He told the Sun Online: "There were a couple of really loud bangs – shots – and people started screaming and panicking.

"The guy who was shot started screaming and some guys sped off in a car.

"I didn't see how many — I wish I had got my eyes on the car."

The witness, who wished to remain anonymous, told how the young man pleaded for help as he lay bleeding on the pavement.



He said: "He was in immense pain and on the floor screaming in agony and calling for help.

"There was panic everywhere. Officers were there within five minutes or less.

"It's quite shocking. I would definitely say it was gang related.

"Gangs hang around that area all the time. That place has history."

Several police cars and ambulances rushed to the busy main road outside the Jubilee Line station after reports of a multiple shooting flooded in to dispatchers.

A woman, 30, and two men – aged 18 and 24 – were rushed to hospital with gun shot wounds.

Both men remain in hospital with non life-threatening injuries while the woman has been discharged.

Local roads and the tube station were closed as officers began their hunt for suspects.

The bloodied crime scene, outside a row of shops and restaurants, was pictured littered with clothes including a baseball cap and Nike trainers.

Metropolitan Police confirmed emergency services were called to Kingsbury Road in North West London last night, rushing to the scene with ambulance crews.



It is so far unclear if all three victims — believed to be in a non-life threatening condition — suffered gunshot wounds.

Witness Joe Boyce, who was drinking at a local pub, wrote online: "I’m in Kingsbury Hennessys, someone just got shot outside!!"

And worried Twitter user @anitaskrr wrote: "Anyone in Kingsbury please stay safe, there has just been a shooting".

London Ambulance Service confirmed three patients were rushed to hospital — but did not clarify if each had suffered gunshot wounds.

A spokesperson said: "Three patients were found at the scene and they were taken to hospital."

Armed police had responded just hours earlier to reports of shots being fired outside a school in upmarket Maida Vale, West London.

Gun cops were pictured surrounding the entrance to Kennet West Skills Centre at about 4.10pm.

Police said nobody was injured in the shooting.

The suspect is believed to have fled the scene and as of this morning no arrests have been made.

The latest spate of gun violence comes amid calls for a crackdown on antique firearms flooding Britain's streets.

Concerns over unrestricted sales of "obsolete" guns are growing as gangs fashion homemade ammunition to once again make them deadly weapons.

At least 91 homicide investigations have been carried out by police in the capital since the start of this year.
