NORTH LONDON FUNERAL DREAD

SEVEN people were injured in the London funeral shooting, including a 7-year-old girl fighting for her life and a 12-year-old child.

Four women and two girls were taken to the hospital after being shot by a passing vehicle while mourners gathered outside the church ‘to watch doves being released.’

FUNERAL DREAD

Six people were injured, including two young girls, in a drive-by shooting outside a church in north London.

At around 1.30 pm on Saturday, emergency services were called to St Aloysius Church in Euston, where a funeral was reportedly taking place.

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that a gun was fired, injuring four women and two girls aged seven and twelve.

According to reports, the seven-year-old is now fighting for her life.

“She remains in hospital in a life-threatening condition,” a Met spokesperson said.

The four women, aged 21, 48, 54, and 41, were taken to a hospital in central London, with the 48-year-old suffering potentially fatal injuries.

However, none of the three injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

A second 12-year-old girl was taken to the hospital with a minor leg injury but was later released, according to police on Saturday evening.

Witnesses said Fresia Calderon, 50, and her 20-year-old daughter Sara Sanchez were attending a funeral at the time.

Fresia died in November after collapsing and dying at Heathrow Airport, and Sara died 25 days later from leukemia, which she had already been diagnosed with.

Fresia was on a flight from Colombia when she collapsed shortly after landing and died.

Doctors later blamed it on a pulmonary embolism, a rare blood clot that typically begins in the legs and becomes lodged in an artery in the lungs.

Sara, who was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 17, ‘gave up all hope’ after losing her mother, according to a family member.

Early investigations into the shooting indicate that the gunman fired from a passing vehicle, with witnesses saying they were outside watching a dove release when they fired.

“When the service finished, we were outside to see the doves flying,” Jaouida Ifghallal told MyLondon.

“A black car appeared and began firing bullets. It was a shambles!”

A large police presence remained on Phoenix Road, the scene of the shooting.

“I heard a big bang and police are in the church right now,” said Father Jeremy Trood of St Aloysius Church. People who were about to leave the church rushed back in.”

One witness who was in the church at the time described the scene as “chaos”.

“No one knew whether it was a bomb or a gunman,” said one witness.

“We were looking for safe havens. We just huddled in any available corner. Left after about 10 minutes because I was afraid to [leave before]. It was not pleasant.”

“An urgent investigation is underway, and details of the incident are still emerging,” a Met spokesperson said.

“At this early stage, no arrests have been made.

“The incident occurred near a church where a funeral was taking place.

“Preliminary investigations indicate that the shots were fired from a moving vehicle, which was then driven away from the scene.”

“Any shooting incident is unacceptable, but for multiple people, including two children, to be injured in the middle of a Saturday afternoon is shocking,” said Superintendent Ed Wells.

“Our thoughts are with all the victims, but in particular with the seven-year-old girl who is in a life-threatening condition and with her family.

“An investigation into this dreadful attack is already well underway involving local officers and specialist detectives. I can assure Camden and surrounding communities that we will do everything possible to identify and prosecute those responsible.

“Residents can expect to see an increased visible police presence in the area through the weekend and into the days ahead as we progress this investigation.

“I would encourage anyone with information to contact the police or Crimestoppers anonymously.”

The shooting was described as “deeply distressing” by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

“This is a deeply distressing incident, and my thoughts are with those who were injured and their families,” Mr. Khan said.
