He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No arrests have currently been made with The Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime Command launching an investigation with an extensive crime scene in place.

Police currently believe that many people were present when the incident took place, and are urging those with vital information to come forward.

Chief Superintendent Andy Carter said: “My thoughts are with the families of the two victims who have suffered such an unimaginable loss in this shocking and unacceptable incident.

“We will support our colleagues as they investigate and members of the public will see an increased policing presence in the area.

“I urge anyone who has information that can help us establish exactly what has happened to approach those officers or contact us immediately. A man and boy have lost their lives and we must now work together to identify those responsible and remove them from our streets.”
