Girl, 9, fighting for life and three injured after shooting in Dalston

A nine-year-old girl is fighting for her life and three others were left injured after a shooting in Dalston.

Multiple shots were fired from a motorcycle at Evin restaurant in Kingsland High Street at 9.20pm on May 29.

The girl, who was having dinner with her family inside the restaurant, was hit by one of the bullets fired.

Three men – aged 26, 37 and 42 – who were sitting outside the restaurant were rushed to hospital with gunshot wounds.

Their condition has been described as stable, but one potentially faces life-changing injuries.

Police have said they do not believe the girl was known to the injured men, describing her as “an innocent victim of the indiscriminate nature of gun crime”.

A spokesperson for the Met added that the gun was fired from a stolen motorbike that was later found abandoned nearby.

No arrests have been made as police enquires continue.
