A teenager has been rushed to hospital after being shot in south London.

Police were called to Brixton Hill, Lambeth, following reports of a firearm discharge on May 12 at 7.15pm.

Officers at the scene found a male in his late teens with a gunshot wound.

He has been rushed to hospital, but no further information about his condition has been released.

A witness on social media claims they saw a car crash on Acre Lane, near to the town hall, before a number of people got out of the vehicle and fired multiple shots from a handgun.

peaking to My London, one witness passing by on a bus, said: ‘The bus stopped and we heard then saw this big silver 4×4 crash and there were these guys running out of it, then we heard six gunshots and a guy with a rifle ran by the bus.

‘It’s the first time I’ve ever experienced something like that.’

The Met says a crime scene remains in place and the road – at the junction with Effra Road – is closed to traffic.

At this early stage, there have been no arrests and enquiries continue. Anyone with information is asked to call police via 101 quoting reference CAD 6825/12May.

According to a witness passing by the scene on a bus, people were ‘shaking and crying’ when they heard the gun shots and crouched down for safety.

The anoymous witness told My London: ‘[The bus] was probably about 70/100 meters away. It was pretty loud and you could tell straight away what it was – a car crash then multiple gun shots

‘Our bus was stopped when it was happening, then I crouched down for safety’

At this early stage, there have been no arrests and enquiries continue.
