Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was shot in the shoulder in Wood Green High Road.
The 27-year-old victim was with two of his friends when they were chased by a gang at about 9.45pm last night.
He was hit in the shoulder with a bullet before the trio found refuge in a shop.
But the armed group of suspects then opened fire into the shop and hit a member of staff, who fortunately did not require hospital treatment.
The suspects are thought to have fled in a silver saloon car.
The victim was treated at hospital but has now been discharged. Trident officers are now appealing for information and any footage that may have been captured.
Scotland Yard said no motive has been established and no arrests made.
