There's a board up in Charlton Church Lane about a shooting that happened there in the early hours of Saturday the 14th of July. It doesn't sound like anyone was hurt, shots were fired and the shooters fled.
The News Shopper web site is also carrying a story about another shooting at the same place, on a Saturday and at the same time. Click here to see it.
So were there two incidents or one? Have News Shopper got the date wrong? Any ideas?
Anyway I'm not sure how I feel about this. It should be rather frightening but for some reason I don't feel too phased by it. Am I viewing it with the correct sense of proportion or somehow in denial about it?
I also wonder if this is connected with the gang situation that is rumoured to be rife in SE London.
I'm sure that you're all bright enough to realise that if you did see or hear anything, absolutely anything, about this then you should be phoning the police. As for me I really don't recall a thing, I think I was sound asleep at the time as I had an early start the next day.
Thanks go out to John-Paul for sending me an email about the notice a few days ago, it's much appreciated.
Edited to add: I emailed the newspaper and they've confirmed that there was only one shooting on the 14th of July. They've fixed the story to make clear that they're not talking about Saturday just gone but one several weeks ago. Nice to see them move so quickly to clarify things. Hopefully someone out there knows something and can help the police out.
