A man has pleaded guilty to shooting a man and woman.

A 46-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man suffered gunshot wounds during an incident in Lordship Lane, Wood Green, on September 19 last year.

The Met Police had responded to an emergency call at around 9.50pm, along with the London Ambulance Service, but when the emergency services arrived at the scene, there was no sign of any victims or suspect.

A man and woman later turned up to hospital - the woman was in a critical condition.

Both shooting victims have since been discharged.

Three days after the shooting, police arrested Kenloy Clarke, 34, of Birkbeck Road, Hornsey, and he was charged with:

  • one count of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, 
  • one count of possession of ammunition with intent to endanger life.
  • one count of possession of a firearm when prohibited,
  • one count of possession of ammunition without a firearm certificate,
  • two counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

At the Old Bailey on Wednesday, Clarke pleaded guilty to all charges.

He will be sentenced at the same court on July 3.

DC Damon Carr from the Trident unit at specialist crime north, said: "I hope this verdict brings some kind of closure for the two victims in this case, who were lucky not to have lost their lives.

"The Met will continue to relentlessly bear down on all forms of violence that threaten our communities."
