Witness appeal after Crofton Park shooting

The Met Police are asking for witnessing after the second shooting in Crofton Park in recent months. They say:

We are appealing for witnesses after a man was shot in South London yesterday evening 15th October 2012.

Police were called to Lewisham Hospital after a 20 year old man was admitted suffering from a gun shot wound to his stomach.

The incident is believed to have occurred at 19:55 hours at Buckthorne Road/Courtrai Road.

The victim managed to drive from the scene to hospital. He did receive treatment but has since been discharged. House to house enquiries were conducted by officers

No arrests, inquiries continue.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Trident on 0208 785 8580 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111

Mmmmm - saw two large police vans parked at the bottom of Cranfield Road this morning. Wonder if it was related to this?

I saw two young men arguing on a street corner this afternoon.

Perhaps this is also linked?

I saw someone looking cross because the corner shop ran out of skimmed. He's huffed and walked out.

Perhaps this is also linked?

I saw the police vans too, and I saw the residents of the house they were parked outside being pulled in to them handcuffed, it looked like it was a raid.

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness. But the that was over a week ago and that wasn't in Crofton Park proper, more like upper Brockley.

Oh, I see

Shooting = Crofton Park, no longer Brockley eh? But Arlo & Mo is in....Brockley, of course.

Still, terrible news wherever it happened.

I saw a police car parked up outside the bakery. The staff there looked very suspicious as they handed sandwiches over.

The Buckthorne/Courtrai corner is in fact in SE23, Forest Hill can claim this one.

Ha ha, ok, touché @anon 10.24

Bad example, but it is still the case that good things are Brockley and bad things Crofton Park. Or Forest Hill as @anon 11.02 says

'OK so I was wrong, but I'm right anyway!'

CP is in Brockley, so this is a ridiculous argument. But just like when there was once a spate of shootings around Brockley Cross (where I live) I referred to them as being in Brockley Cross (rather than Brockley), I am referring to the shootings as being in Crofton Park, because that is a helpful extra layer of detail.

You sound like a Scottish nationalist.

I love all of Brockley equally.

All Brockley is equal, but some is more equal than others.
