“Our investigation into this terrible crime continues,” Det Insp Webb added. “We’ve spoken to people and been contacted by others who have been disgusted by this horrific incident.
“I want to reassure them that we’ll stop at nothing to find those persons who left this woman so seriously injured.”
Police believe 10 people were in Broadway Market about 10 minutes before the shooting who were being filmed for a music video “with professional looking camera equipment”.
But they got into conflict with another group arriving in the market. A gun was fired which hit the woman and both groups fled the scene leaving her badly wounded in the street.
