A 19-year-old teenager was fighting for his life last night. After being gunned down outside Sudbury Hill Tube station in West London.
Teenager shot outside London Tube station: The victim was discovered outside the station with bullet wounds and rushed to a West London hospital. A witness to the shooting said that they heard 5 shots ring out at around 6.40pm on Wednesday. The witness, Michael, 44, told The Evening Standard when interviewed that. “I heard five loud bangs which came on top of each other, one per second.
There was no screams or noise, I didn’t see anyone running. The traffic began to slow and people started to congregate. Oddly, the shots sounded like someone hitting a piece of metal.” Videos and photos posted to online media site Twitter showed ambulances outside the station and a police cordon. Another witness who lives near the station described seeing the victim slumped on the ground near a set of traffic lights.
The 31-year-old lady said I was in my kitchen when we heard four shots, then a scream but very short. Because we had a lot of fireworks the last two weeks with Diwali, I thought maybe they were fireworks. But then me and my sister said its not because the sound was very different. It was like someone hitting a thick metal plate.
And then we saw the police coming and we saw a person lying on the road at the traffic lights. It is the first time I hear gunshots in my life so we didn’t realise that those were gunshots until we saw the police.” Greenford Road is now closed and no trains are stopping at the Tube station while police continue the investigation. There have been no arrests so far and the gunman is still being hunted.
