A young man was shot in Thornton Heath in the early hours of yesterday morning.
The 31-year-old male arrived at Croydon University Hospital at 5:30am on November 30, suffering with gunshot wounds to the back. Medical staff called police to the scene immediately.
Police believe the shooting occurred on Brigstock Road, although full details of the crime have not yet been uncovered.
The man has not been identified, but police confirmed that he has since been discharged from hospital.
The Trident Gang Crime Command, which is responsible for tackling gang violence and shootings across London, is investigating the incident. No arrests have yet been made.
According to Metropolitan Police data, there have been 77 counts of gun crime in Croydon in the one-year period from October 2013-14.
The Croydon shooting follows the cross-borough “firearms surrender” which was organised by Metropolitan police earlier this month.
The surrender, which requested that Londoners “give up their guns” and ammunition, saw more than 350 firearms handed into police stations across London during a two-week period.
A police spokesperson said: “We would urge anyone with information to contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
