A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after two men and a teenager were shot with a shotgun.

The 26-year-old man was arrested on yesterday - He is currently in custody at an east London police station.

Detectives are still appealing for information and witnesses to the shooting in Gordon Road, Edmonton last Saturday at 6.00pm.

Two men and a teenage boy were injured when a shotgun was fired twice into a minicab, they were sitting in.

None of those injuries are life-threatening, but the two men remain in hospital - one has serious injuries.

Police believe the shooting is linked to an incident in Fraser Road, Edmonton at 5.55pm on Sunday when four men were stabbed.

The men were attacked by a group of up to 10 men in their car.

Four men from the car, all aged in their 20s, were found by police and medics with stab wounds.

They were all taken to north London hospitals.

Two of the men have since been discharged from hospital, one man has minor injuries whilst the fourth man is in a serious but stable condition.

No arrests have been made in regard to the stabbing and police believe both attacks were targeted against specific individuals.

Detective Chief Inspector John Hughes, from Trident Area and Crime Command, said: "These two separate incidents in Edmonton over the last two days are being treated as linked.

“We are taking both incidents very seriously.

"Violence like this has no place in our streets and my team are busy working through CCTV footage, knocking on doors and speaking to locals to build a clearer picture of what took place.

"Although none of these stabbings or the shooting resulted in death, they could easily have done so. Two men continue to receive treatment in hospital for serious injuries - Their conditions are however stable.”
