Shootings follow gang gun violence

The three terrifying shootings across Parson Cross come less than two years after police secured gang injunctions on the estate following a spate of gun violence.

At the end of 2012, guns were being fired on Parson Cross an average of once a day for a month – and detectives applied for gang injunctions for 12 individuals known to be connected.
