Two men have been arrested in connection with a shooting that took place outside a Highbury nightclub on Monday.

The men, aged 28 and 30 and both from North London, were arrested at about 8pm on Tuesday at a petrol station in Craven Road, Tottenham.

Police were called to a disturbance at The Garage in Highbury Crescent at 11.41pm on Monday but arrived to find the victim, 25, who was shot in the leg, had made his own way to hospital. His injuries were not life threatening and he remained in a stable condition in hospital this morning.

Officers from the Met’s Trident unit are investigating and are asking anyone who might have seen the incident to come forward by calling 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
