Detectives investigating a shooting in South London have seized a firearm and arrested three people following an early-morning raid.

A 36-year-old man and a 27-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm and attempted murder and an 18-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm.

They have been taken to a south London police station where they remain in custody.

Police were called at around 12.30am on Saturday, February 5 to reports of a gun being fired near a housing complex in Lambeth Walk.

Officers attended but no injuries were reported.

Detectives from the Trident Reactive team, part of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, launched an investigation and carried out a number of enquiries.

In the early hours of Wednesday, February 9, police searched a residential address in Lambeth Walk.

Officers searched the property and recovered a firearm. It has now been made safe and has been sent away for testing.

Detective Sergeant Jake Ellis, from Trident, said: “Tackling violence remains our top priority. Restricting the availability of firearms is critical to protecting communities.

“Firearms have no place in London and today’s seizure has inevitably prevented further violence. We will continue to robustly target both those who carry firearms and those who supply them.”

Anyone with information about gun crime is asked to call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC. Alternatively, to give information anonymously, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
