Upper Clapton Shooting

Shooting scene on Upper Clapton Road

Police were called at 5:15 pm today (Sunday) April 11 after residents reported gunshots along Upper Clapton Road E5.

There are no reports of injury or fatalities and police are still at the scene conducting investigations.

Upper Clapton Road between Lea Bridge Roundabout and Evering Road are sealed off and closed to traffic.

The shooting appears to be in the same vicinity as the shooting of Cem Duzgun in October 25 2009.

  1. I cannot believe this. This is the second time I’ve heard gunshots, I live right near the roundabout and heard the shots of this and last years shooting, bringing up my 1 year old in this area is becoming veery traumatic for me. Not knowing how safe I am…these people really need to stop all this violence and killing, its not getting anyone anywhere!!!!

  2. I live further up and was on my way with a friend to Stoke Newington….I never heard anything, but was in traffic on my way. We turned around and came back home but police woman confirmed there was a shooting.

    It’s just a matter of time before an innocent person gets shot from a stray bullet.

  4. Nik I haven’t heard of a stabbing in Clapton Pond area. Some times these stabbings don’t make it to news or even police blotters.

    Shell casings were found in the shooting area in Upper Clapton last night, so all I can say is, there are some lucky f*****s in Hackney this morning. I believe there are CCTV cameras outside the convinience store close to where it went down as well as Clapton station.

  7. This is shocking.. I moved to Clapton not so long ago, and all these crimes are just freaking me out! I dont feel safe in this neck of the woods! Man, women, girl, boy or even baby..Watch OUT..You could just be you in the wrong place at the wrong time…These criminal see nothing but red and they live amongst us! Just another Brixton! Im so overwhelmed and disgraced! Surely, there is something we as a community could do? Move away? Hibernate-lock myself in? Neighbourhood watch? They’re just as pathetic; I’ve waited a whole year to hear from my local police force about a meeting..and im still waiting! What to do??
