He was transported to a hospital where his condition is described as serious. When asked if life threatening, a police spokesperson admitted to Hackney Hive “it could be”.

No arrests have been made.

An eye witness, who said the shooting took place right outside his house posted on an internet football forum: “Young lad shot several times outside my house less than 20 minutes ago. I was on the phone talking to a friend when I heard the shots and looked out the window to see a man lying in the road.

By the time I got my act together and went down to see what I could do the word from witnesses was that it was done by a young teen”.

He added: “Like I said it is becoming the norm these days. Two weeks ago I was just walking down the road and stopped to talk to some of the guys on the street. When one of these wannabe gangster approached my mate with a lame argument it got heated and the immediate response was I going to shoot ya to my mate.”
