A firearm was seized by officers this morning after it was discovered on Loxford Lane in Ilford this morning.
Police were called to the road, in Ilford, just before 9am this morning, and found the weapon, which has now been sent for testing.
Last year, an 11-year-old boy was hit by a stray gunshot pellet and a 22-year-old man shot in the back, on the same road.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said he was unable to share details about the weapon, until testing had been carried out.
No arrests have been made.
