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."
