A GUNMAN opened fire in a busy Muswell Hill nightclub at the weekend, shooting three people.

The suspect, described as a black man, sprayed bullets into The Hill at 2.05am on Saturday.

A 27-year-old woman was shot in the hand, a 23-year-old man was shot in the chest and a 28-year-old man was shot in the neck.

Immediately after the gun shots were fired, a rush of people tried to flee the club and several were injured in the crush with some needing hospital treatment.

Det Sgt Jez Dargan from Trident said: "This is a serious incident with one man firing multiple shots in a nightclub on a busy Friday night.

"The panic from the clubbers after the shots led to even more injuries and I would urge anyone who was in the club and hasn't spoken to police to come forward and help us catch this man."

Another male was given first aid in the club for a gunshot wound to the leg. After receiving first aid he left and police have urged him to make contact with them.

The gunman is described as a black man aged either in his late teens or early 20s.

Anyone with information is asked to call Trident on 0208-733 4774 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
