Barnhill SNT statement on last weekend's fatalities

From Barnhill Safer Neighbourhood Team

Our thoughts remain with the families of the two young men who have had their lives taken from them in the most horrific way.

We are working closely with our colleagues in the Homicide and Major Crime Command to establish what happened and to identify those responsible. I would urge anyone with information in relation to either murder to come forward and speak with us.

 As a result of the tragic shooting on Harrow Road on Friday, 5 July there was an enhanced police presence in the area throughout the night.

 A section 60 Order – enabling officers to carry out more stop and searches - was also authorised and this ran until 10:00hrs the following morning. This order was kept under constant review.
 Throughout the weekend we were working with partners and community groups to understand the impact of such violent incidents and deal with the consequences. This work will continue in the days, weeks and months ahead.

Across London, bearing down on violent crime on our streets continues to be the Met’s top priority.
 We are working tirelessly - day and night – to identify and pursue offenders, help bring perpetrators to justice, take weapons off the street, support victims, engage and reassure the public, and keep our communities safe.

Kind Regards
