The Metropolitan Police identified the victim of a deadly shooting in north London on Tuesday as 22-year-old Sharmake Mohamud.

Mr Mohamud, of Newham, east London, was shot dead in Green Lanes, near the junction of West Green Road, Wood Green, just after 10:30 PM.

Officers were called to the scene, including paramedics and an air ambulance, as well as armed police, but the man was pronounced dead less than half an hour later.

Although no official identification has yet been made, police said Mohamud’s closest relative had been notified.

Two other people, whom the police thought were injured in the incident, were discharged from the hospital after their treatment.

These were a 24-year-old man who was hospitalized after receiving a gunshot wound, and a man in his late 30s who was shot while cycling the scene.

After being shot, he again went to his home in Edmonton, north London, but was later taken to hospital by ambulance.

The four men, all in their early 20s, were arrested on suspicion of murder and released on bail to return to police in early October.

Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley urged anyone with knowledge to come forward.

“We are investigating the brutal murder of a young man. This immoral act traumatized a family and two more needed urgent hospital treatment as they mourned the loss of a loved one.

“Please call the police if you witnessed the fire, have any information, or if you’re driving in the area and have dashcam footage. Your information will be kept completely confidential and you can always call Crimestoppers if you don’t want to reveal your name.

“While four people have been arrested on suspicion of murder, I want the public to understand that this is too early an investigation and I’m sure more arrests will be needed. We need to get the gun and gunman off the streets, and for that I need the public’s help.”

Anyone with information can call the police on 101 with reference 8093/21SEP or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or online to stay anonymous.
