Police witness appeal after shooting on Isle of Dogs near Canary Wharf
Police are appealing for witnesses this-morning to a shooting in London’s East End.
They were called to Byng Street in Millwall on the Isle of Dogs, close to Canary Wharf, at 7.30pm last night.
A man was found in the street with several gunshot wounds. He was taken by ambulance to hospital and is said to be in a critical condition this-morning.
Detectives have been carrying out door-to-door inquiries in the neighbourhood.
“We don’t know if there was a motive,” a police spokesman told the Advertiser. “We are keeping an open mind at this stage, but need to speak to anyone who was in the area who may have information.”
