Sudbury Hill shooting: Teenager, 19, gunned down outside west London tube station – Evening Standard



One witness described hearing five gunshots ring out near Sudbury Hill Station, Greenford at about 6.40pm on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old victim was found suffering bullet wounds and taken to a west London hospital, police said. His condition is not known.

No arrests have been made and detectives are hunting the gunman.

Michael, 44, who hosts the Murder Mile UK True Crime Podcast, said he was inside Sudbury Hill Station when the shooting happened.

He told the Evening Standard: “I heard five loud bangs which came on top of each other, one per second.

“There was no screams or noise, I didn’t see anyone running. The traffic began to slow and people started to congregate. 

“Oddly, the shots sounded like someone hitting a piece of metal.”

Pictures and videos posted on Twitter show a number of ambulances parked behind a large police cordon thrown up around the station.  

Another claimed the gunshots had be heard in two miles away in Greenford. 

Trains are not stopping at the station and Greenford Road is also closed.

The shooting comes days after Jamalie Maleek Deacon Matthew, 17, was stabbed to death outside Northwick Park station, just over two miles away.

The aspiring lawyer was found suffering from stab injuries outside the station at about 3.50pm on Thursday. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene. In a statement, his family from Harrow said they were “deeply saddened and utterly devastated”.
