I was saddened to hear from the Police that a murder investigation has been launched after the tragic death of a young man in Green Lanes, close to the junction of West Green Road, following a shooting on the evening of Tuesday 21 September 2021.
My thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends, and with our community who are understandably anxious following this violent and shocking incident.
I have repeatedly raised constituents’ safety concerns and have been in contact with Haringey Police since the shooting. I am pleased that patrols have been increased in the area, but it is clear that more must be done to ensure all residents can feel safe in their local community.
I would urge anyone with any information on this incident or information which would assist in reducing knife crime and violence in our community to contact North Area police on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
