Detective Sergeant Ewan Robertson, from Trident, who is leading the investigation said: "We received several calls regarding gun shots in Ravenswood Park early on Sunday morning, but I'd urge anyone who might have seen what happened, but hasn't contacted police, to get in touch with us to help with our investigation."

Welcome to the Sham (Catford Sham to be precise), nothing changes there then does it? Usual ones just doing what they do best! Sometimes wonder, when it's all going to stop! I somehow doubt it's too late for that now. What a very sad society that lives in London.

And what was the victim doing walking around at that time on a Sunday morning?! Probably with 3 pairs of joggers on and a few new phones

If the gangs want to carry on, just let them carry on shooting each other
