Two men sought after firearms incident in Canning Town

Detectives investigating a suspected firearms incident in Newham have released CCTV footage of two suspects they want to identify and trace.

On Saturday, 30 December 2017, police received reports that shots had been fired in Butchers Road, Canning Town at around 03:25hrs.

CCTV footage shows a man (suspect two) holding a shotgun whilst chasing another male (suspect one) along the street between parked cars.

Both suspects then returned to Butchers Road a few moments later, at which point suspect one produced a handgun from a bag held by another male.

Suspect one then fired the gun on at least two occasions in the direction of suspect two. No one was injured.

Suspect two was not seen on CCTV discharging a firearm.

Both suspects were pushed back at different times by a male wearing a red top who appeared to be trying to calm the situation.

Suspect one is described as a black male and he was wearing black joggers, black trainers and a black coat with a light-coloured fur hood.

Suspect two is described as a black male and he was wearing a knee-length coat with a hood and baseball cap.

No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
