One tenant who lives in the Northview Estate said: “I heard an air ambulance and sirens so I got my walking stick and set out. There were loads of people there, and the road was completely blocked off.
“It’s really worrying. I was born and bred here and this isn’t our Holloway. There’s too much knife crime.”
