Police are appealing for witnesses and information after gunshots were fired in Hornsey Rise on Saturday night.

Cops were called at about 9.30pm after receiving reports of disorder and gunshots in New Orleans Walk.

One eyewitness told the Gazette he heard four shots and a “bunch of young men running around the estate”.

On arrival, no injured parties were located by the police officers. There have been no arrrests.

The eyewitness added: “Six weeks ago there were armed robbers smashing a car into a wall trying to break open a stolen money box at 11am. It’s becoming like the Wild West round there.”

Saturday’s shooting happened just yards from where David “Dawood” Robinson was murdered in Sunnyside Road in August 2016. His killer is still at large.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 020 8217 7355 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
