Two Teens from Kent have been arrested on attempted Murder Charges after Dagenham Drive-by Shooting

Detectives investigating after a man was stabbed and shot in Whalebone Lane South, Dagenham have made two further arrests

Two teenagers, both 17, were arrested in the Ashford area of Kent on Friday 10 May on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life. Both men currently remain in custody in Kent and will be taken to London for questioning.

Detective Inspector Iain Wallace, who is leading the investigation for the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “We know that the victim was riding a bike on the street when he was attacked by a group of men who arrived at and left the scene in three cars.

“We have made a number of arrests so far in our investigation, however, we are still keen to hear from anyone with any information who has not yet spoken to police.

“This wasn’t a disagreement or a fight, it was an ambush that has left a 19-year-old fighting for his life. If you have information that could help us take these dangerous individuals off your streets please do get in touch.”

Police were called to Whalebone Lane South in Dagenham at about 17:20hrs on Thursday, 2 May following reports that a man has been stabbed.

Shortly after, a second call was received from a member of the public reporting gunshots heard in the area.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a 19-year-old man, with what appeared to be stab injuries. He was taken to hospital where it was confirmed that he had been stabbed and also shot.

He remains in hospital in a critical condition. His next of kin has been informed.

Four men and a woman, aged between 18 and 25 years old, had previously been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. They have since been bailed pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information or footage relating to this incident should call 101 quoting 5857/02May.
