Man to appear in court today after shot fired at Ilford police

A 33-year-old man has been charged in connection with an armed siege on a house in Ilford on Wednesday.

Marza Khan, of Hamilton Road, Ilford, was arrested on the M1 heading towards Northamptonshire at around 3pm, four hours after police were called to a domestic incident in a home in Holmwood Road, Ilford.

Police said a person was later stopped on the corner of Cobham Road and Asher Road and a shot was fired at them.

Armed police and a helicopter swooped on the home, but the suspect appeared to have eluded police.

Khan will appear at London’s Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court today charged with using a firearm to resist arrest.
