An investigation has been launched following a shooting in south London.

Police were called at about 3:15pm on Monday, to reports of a firearm discharge on St Norbert Road, Brockley.

Officers, including firearms officers, attended. A search of the area was carried out but there was no trace of any suspects or victims.

Police were called a short time later after an 18-year-old man turned up at a south London hospital with a gunshot injury. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Officers are working to trace two male suspects seen leaving the area on a moped.

There have been no arrests so far.

Detectives from Specialist Crime (Trident) are investigating and ask anyone who was in the area and saw anything suspicious, or who may have captured dash cam or doorbell footage that could assist police, to make contact.

Anyone with information is asked to call police via 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting reference CAD 4414/16May.

If you do not wish to speak to police you can also provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

In spite of the incident, The Met says its efforts to cut down gun crime in London is having a significant impact.

So far this year, lethal gun discharges have reduced by 37 per cent (Jan-April 22) compared to the same period in 2021.

Officers have seized 524 lethal firearms from the streets (financial year 2021/22) compared with 480 in the same period for 2020/21 and 408 in 2019/20;

The number of shootings has also gone down from 283 in the financial year 2019/20 to 196 in 2021/22.

They say the results are thanks to dedicated proactive units carrying out long term, intelligence-led operations in areas of heightened gang criminality, spearheaded by our Specialist Crime Command.

Investigations into shootings are becoming stronger, with an increase in the number of charges brought for investigations into shootings rising from 20 per cent in 2019/20 to 38 per cent in 2021/22.
