Tube shocked by bloodied gun victim
Thursday 10 March 2011
A bloodied gunshot victim left train passengers horrified as he staggered on to a carriage moments after being attacked, police said today.
The 27-year-old boarded a Bakerloo Tube train in a bid to escape a gunman who shot him in the back on the steps of Harlesden station, north-west London, yesterday.
Fellow passengers looked on in shock before he was met by emergency services on the platform at Willesden Junction.
The victim, from south London, was said to be in a stable condition today.
Detectives are examining CCTV footage from Harlesden station in a bid to identify the gunman.
A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman said officers were called just after 2pm.
"At present it isn't clear which type of firearm caused the injuries," he said.
"Police are working to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident, including what took place before, during and after, and how the man came about his injuries."
Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information is asked to contact BTP on 0800 405040, quoting incident 296 of March 9.
