A 24-year-old man is seriously ill after being shot in the leg in Queen’s Crescent yesterday.
Police were called to the junction of Queen’s Crescent and Grafton Road in Kentish Town just after 6pm.
A man with a leg wound was driven to a hospital in central London by ambulance, where his condition is understood to be serious.
London’s air ambulance helicopter also flew to the scene and the doctor from the air ambulance accompanied the injured man to hospital.
Jan Ibrahimi, 22, a shop keeper, who works in Queen’s Crescent, said: “There was a crowd everywhere but I didn’t see the shot.
“The man was on the floor and the street was crowded.”
Police asked to see the shop’s CCTV footage and left leaflets to be displayed by local businesses.

James Blake, 63, who lives in Grafton Road, said: “There’s been a lot of tension in this area. I believe its gang related, mostly young people. They stand on the pavement and expect you to walk round them.
“It gets worse and worse, one day it will brew up. There is going to be more of this.”
