Two gunmen who shot a man in broad daylight in Seven Kings have still not been caught, a year after the attack.
Their 28-year-old victim suffered one bullet wound after a man on a motorbike shot into the car he was travelling in on September 21 2012.
He was in hospital for more than four months after the attack near the junction of Aldborough Road South, Meads Lane and St Johns Road.
According to witnesses, the car had been chased by two men on a motorbike before the shooting around 5pm.
A shopkeeper, who did not want to be identified, said: “There were two boys on motorbikes and one got off and fired four shots at the car.

“It was the people in the back that were shot and the driver drove away.”
The daylight shooting was by a row of shops, Downshall Primary School and St John the Evangelist church.
