Police are appealing for witnesses after two people were shot dead in Ilford.

Armed officers responded to reports of a fight and shots fired inside a house in Henley Road shortly after midnight on Tuesday, 25 October.

Three men were found with gunshot injuries. Despite the efforts of emergency services, two of them, aged 23 and 30, died at the scene.

Another 30-year-old man was taken to hospital where he remains in a life-threatening condition.

Detectives believe a number of people were inside the house at the time of the incident and say they are working to trace multiple suspects.

A car linked to the shooting was recovered nearby in Ronnie Lane. No arrests have been made.

“This was a tragic incident that resulted in two men losing their lives and a third man being critically injured,” said Detective Inspector Matt Read. “We are in contact with their families and will support them as they come to terms with this awful news.

“We are still in the early stages of the investigation and are working to establish exactly what happened. A number of crime scenes will remain in place while we carry out these urgent enquiries. I believe there was a number of people at the house in Henley Road at the time of the shooting and I would encourage them to come forward as a matter of urgency.

“We will not tolerate such violence on the streets of London and we are working round the clock to catch those responsible. I understand there will be significant concern in the community and an increased number of local officers will be in the area over the coming days to listen to any concerns.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact police by calling 101 quoting CAD 99/25Oct. To remain anonymous contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
