A murder investigation has launched after a woman died in a shooting in Hackney.

Three people were found with gunshot wounds in Vine Close at around 6.30pm on Tuesday, 5 December.

Officers attended along with paramedics from the London Ambulance Service.

Despite the efforts of the emergency services, a 42-year-old woman died at the scene.

Her next of kin are in the process of being informed and will be supported by specialist family liaison officers.

Two other people, a 20-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy, were taken to hospital. Their conditions have since been assessed as not life-threatening.

Detective Superintendent Vicky Tunstall, from the local policing team in Hackney, said: “This shocking incident has resulted in the death of a woman and my thoughts are with her family at this incredibly difficult time. My thoughts are also with the two people who have been taken to hospital.

“We are still in the early stages of our investigation and a team of specialist detectives are working to establish what has happened. Officers will remain at the scene overnight and will be in the area over the coming days.

“I do not underestimate the impact this incident will have on people in Hackney and I understand the community will want answers about what has happened this evening. We will share further information as our investigation progresses.

“Gun crime has no place on the streets of London and we will do all we can to bring whoever is responsible for this despicable crime to justice.”

Anyone who witnessed the shooting, or has information about what happened, is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 5811/05Dec.

To remain anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
